Hotels across Canada are glowing hearts as a sign of hope and solidarity

It's lights off at most office towers and buildings across Canada as non-essential businesses remain closed in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. 

But a few skyscrapers are illuminating these dark times with glowing messages of love in the midst of the pandemic. 

Glowing hearts have begun to pop up in Toronto, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Montreal, and Quebec City to show solidarity with folks across the country during the era of social distancing. 

Numerous Fairmont Hotel properties have taken to keeping the lights on in specific rooms to create massive hearts, like the seven-storey heart on the historic Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City. 

Same goes for their Fairmont Waterfront in Vancouver, where you'll find a 14-floor heart on its facade. 

The Fairmont Royal York in Toronto has 26 room lights on to make their heart. 

Same goes for the Fairmont Winnipeg which is simply glowing with good vibes. 

Meanwhile the 42-storey Embassy Suites in Niagara Falls has not one but four hearts illuminated across its complex, along with the word 'hope' on the side.
