A three month campaign to promote tolerance in Timmins is coming to an end tonight.

The Timmins Multicultural Centre is having an Evening of Applause, in conjunction with the UN’s International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

Tom Baby, from the Multicultural Centre, says the first inductees to the Human Rights Wall of Fame will be announced.

He says they received a number of qualified candidates, and committee chose three inductees for this year.

Baby says the plan is to make this a yearly event.

The three inductees will be announced tonight, along with awards for students who took part in a poster campaign, and live entertainment.

The free event is kicking off at 6:30 PM on Wednesday March 25th in the TH & VS auditorium.
