Canadians asked to wear red for N.S. shooting victims to unite the country Friday, April 24 at 2pm

Canadians from coast to coast are being asked to pause Friday in a day of mourning to honour the victims killed in Nova Scotia’s mass shooting.

The National Police Federation (NPF), in partnership with the RCMP, is asking citizens to stop what they’re doing on Friday at 2 p.m. AT, and observe a moment of silence while wearing red.

People are asked to step outside and line up on the sidewalk or edge of a road — if possible —while practising physical distancing, and observe a moment of silence for the tragic events.

Those who participate can also share photos and videos of themselves in red using the hashtag #WearRedFriday.
