Dozens of people in Kelowna’s Indo-Canadian community gathered outside of the hospital to show support for health-care workers on Tuesday evening.
Approximately three dozen vehicles led by a tow truck displayed Canadian flags and showed their appreciation for those on the frontlines, city councillor Mohini Singh said.
“Since this is close to Vaisakhi, we thought we’d do it today,” said rally organizer Paramjit Philip Patara.
