James went public with his story wearing his Canadian Armed Forces uniform sharing his own story of being released from the Armed Forces. This is a huge move to use the uniform as a tool for spreading awareness. 

James announced in early February of 2022 that he would be marching from Vancouver to Ottawa to protest what is going on, collect stories of Canadians along the way, and get a conversation with the employees of the federal government. The Freedom/Trucker convoy re-invigorated James spirit to do something; it now has him and the Canada Marches team moving across the country aiming to start the conversation which wasn’t had with the truckers. 

This is being done on instinct, with resourcefulness in mind; a key trait of a good soldier. Solutions are what James is aiming for, not scratching the itch of talking about how we got here.

As of today, James Topp is approximately 300 km from Ottawa ... and still marching.

Understand, too, that marching is different than walking. It is more regimented, faster paced, and physically taxing. 

Thanks for starting this thread! Topp is so awesome. His heart is as big as his feet!

The march isn't always easy. Occasionally fear, discouragement, physical pain are a part of the story. Here, James Topp addresses some of that early in the mission and you also get a slimpse into some of the challenging conditions along the way:

On his youtube channel, you can view the progress from the very beginning, including his announcements in preparation for this march.

@DaJavoo -- so glad you're seeing his story and yes, like you, I am inspired when regular folks remember they have courage, imagination, and a will to solve problems big and small.

I have to admit, though, that I think James is cut from a stronger cloth than many. Who among us could march at this pace, with a 40 lb. rucksack, and still give a statement of purpose like in this vid:




May he continue to inspire the rest of us to "get off the couch..."  Heartflowers

It's wonderful. How much more content we would be to give thanks for the beautiful land in which we live. No matter if you are in a city, suburb, or rural area ... you can always give thanks.
