MPs and senators rampage to raise awareness

MPs and senators went on a rolling rampage around Parliament Hill Thursday.

The politicians took part in the ‘2012 Rolling Rampage’ to raise awareness for people with physical disabilities.

It was a one-kilometre wheelchair race on the circular driveway that surrounds parliament’s front lawn.

World class Canadian wheelchair athletes also raced, but they race for 10 kilometres and a $30,000 purse.

The reason behind this event was to allow the politicians to experience the daily difficulties faced by disabled people across the country.
