Toronto, Ontario – June 21, 2022  — To celebrate Canada Day, and interview Canadians about their views on democracy, Mark D Swartz is solo cycling 2,000 km from Halifax to Toronto.

He is raising funds for two non-profits: the Canadian Anti-Hate Network (Bernie Farber, Chair, Evan Balgord Exec Director), and Mosaic Institute (dismantling prejudice, Leigh Naturkach, Exec Director).

Mark calls this ride DemocraCycle. “At age 61, I feel I must do what I can to raise awareness for anti-hate and dismantling prejudice in our beloved Canada,” he says.

All donations to the two causes go directly to the organizations via GoFundMme. You can view and contribute to the campaigns at Mark leaves for Halifax on June 25 and will arrive in Toronto around August 20, 2002.
