Letter: Let’s take Peace Walk down Victoria Street

I was puzzled by the route taken this year.

The march went through less populated streets instead of going down busy Victoria Street.

It almost seemed as though we did not want to embarrass people on that street.

Isn’t the peace walk meant to make people aware there is a peace walk?

I hope the route is changed next year to include Victoria Street.
