A Virtual Vigil For the Victims of the Shootings in Nova Scotia

Dear Association Members

A quick note to draw your attention to an event that is happening this evening that was brought to our attention by an Ottawa Division member.

The preamble to the story is as follows,

HALIFAX, N.S. — Friday evening‘s Nova Scotia Remembers virtual vigil in memory of the victims of the mass shooting is shaping up to be a massive online event, with music performances, celebrities and politicians taking part. The vigil will be hosted through Colchester Supporting Our Communities Facebook group, and through YouTube. The website also provides a list of media coverage of the event, as well as verified charities supporting the families.

It begins at 7 p.m. and is expected to run for about three hours.

It has garnered mentions from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and countless social media references across the country.

Cees van den Hoek is one of the administrators of the Facebook group hosting the event. He’s a longtime resident of the Portapique area and, like most Nova Scotians, was deeply affected by the tragedy.

“It’s going to be a combination of music and dedications or tributes (and) there’s going to be some politicians, some (celebrities),” he said, adding that some of the names are not yet being published. “Jonathan Torrens is going to be part of it, I’m allowed to say him.”.
