Victoria’s parliament buildings will light up pink Thursday night following yesterday’s protests against the newly announced vaccine passports that broke out in cities across BC.
The crowds targeted government buildings and hospitals, blocking traffic and impeding emergency vehicle access.
In Nanaimo, Island Health health care workers were verbally assaulted by protesters on their way to and from work. One worker was even physically assaulted.
In response to the targeting of health care workers in the province and across Canada, the BC Legislature will light up in pink tonight.
Tonight, the #BCLeg will be lit in pink to show some 💗 to BC's healthcare workers — a gesture of gratitude for all that they have done and continue to do during the #COVID19 pandemic, in the face of many challenges.
We sincerely appreciate and value you. Thank you. pic.twitter.com/c6TZ7OtuJN
