Ambulances weren’t the only vehicles spotted at Victoria General Hospital’s Emergency parking lot on Friday morning.

At around 10 a.m. on April 10th, first responders from Langford – police, fire, and ambulances – performed a drive-by salute for health care workers at VGH to recognize the tremendous efforts of those battling the COVID-19 pandemic on the front lines.

Organized by West Shore RCMP Cst. Nancy Saggar, the procession of vehicles left Langford, drove down the highway to Victoria General Hospital and through the Emergency parking lot in a gesture of appreciation.

A firetruck stationed on one side of the parking lot extended its aerial ladder to hoist a Canadian Flag above the hospital’s Emergency entrance, after which a local singer performed her rendition of O Canada.

Photos taken by Victoria Buzz photographer Colin Smith show the presence of some prehistoric creatures as well! Three different dinosaurs also arrived the event to express their gratitude.
