It’s a gesture of respect and gratitude.
RCMP in Kelowna have planned a procession in front of Kelowna General Hospital on Saturday and Sunday evening.
The procession will include marked police vehicles with lights and sirens activated as a way to say thank you to the medical professionals on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic.
In Vancouver, thousands of people have been thanking healthcare workers nightly at 7 p.m., from their balconies and windows by making all kinds of noise.
In Kelowna, the RCMP procession is planned for 7:30 p.m., both evenings.
The procession will travel westbound on Clement Avenue, southbound on Water Street and along Pandosy Street past Kelowna General Hospital before officers disperse to their duties.
“This event has been inspired by the utmost respect, admiration, and appreciation the Kelowna RCMP have for our healthcare professionals who have been tasked with a difficult job during the challenges of the pandemic of COVID-19,” said Cpl. Michael Kube.
“We wanted to show our support for everything they are doing for our community.”
