West Shore first responders and students from across the region paraded to Victoria General Hospital the morning of April 10 in a show of support for health care workers.
As O’ Canada rang out Friday morning, fire trucks, RCMP cruisers and more drove through the emergency room parking area in a salute to health care workers.
“It’s very touching because it’s about being appreciated and to know that community knows how dangerous this is. This thank you from the kids … things like this make it all worthwhile,” said one respiratory therapist after receiving a card crafted by local youth.
First responders across Greater Victoria have shown support at both Victoria General Hospital and Royal Jubilee Hospital in a show of support amid the pandemic.
