THUNDER BAY -- Members of Sachigo Lake First Nation are walking 1,000 kilometres in memory of a 20-year-old man killed outside of the city’s movie theatre last fall.

On Oct. 3, 2014, Daniel Levac was fatally stabbed outside of SilverCity movie theatre in Thunder Bay. The Sachigo Lake First Nation youth was a Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School student.

Members of the First Nation will be walking from the community to Thunder Bay through the winter road that connects Sachigo Lake to the highway at Pickle Lake. The journey begins on April 7 and is estimated to take two weeks.
