The 10 a.m. moment of silence was organized in honour of Nova Scotia Const. Heidi Stevenson and the nearly two dozen other victims who died over the course of the 14-hour killing spree that spanned five communities. In addition to Stevenson, a nurse, two correctional officers, a family of three, a teacher and some of the killer’s neighbours were among the victims.
A nationwide campaign #WearRedFriday called for all Canadians to wear red today (April 24) as a tribute to those who died.
“Gone but not forgotten,” Surrey RCMP tweeted.
White Rock’s iconic pier is also to glow red today in honour of the victims. The gesture is also to acknowledge the service of White Rock RCMP members and will include a tribute to health care workers at 9 p.m., the city announced Thursday.
