Friday’s drive-past was the latest in a series of similar events held province-wide to boost morale at B.C. medical facilities

Police, fire and ambulance crews throughout the province have been making regular visits to B.C. hospitals to show their appreciation for health-care workers on the front line of the coronovirus outbreak at hospitals in Kelowna, Vancouver, New Westminster, the North Shore, Victoria, and other communities.

Victoria Police Cheif Del Manak called their drive-past salute “a moment to thank hospital staff, to acknowledge them for everything they are doing during this pandemic, and to let them know that we appreciate their commitment. As first responders, we recognize their incredible work on the frontlines of this public health crisis.”

“What an honour to be able to show our support, along with RCMP and BCAS, for our front-line workers at Lions Gate Hospital. Thank you for what you are doing!” said the City of North Vancouver’s fire department in a message posted online.
