Niagara Falls will glow red to honour Nova Scotia shooting victims

Niagara Falls will glow red tonight to honour the victims of the Nova Scotia shootings that took place last weekend.

"Niagara Falls will be illuminated red tonight from 8 p.m. to midnight as a symbol of bi-national support as Canadians from coast to coast to coast honour the victims of the senseless tragedy in Nova Scotia," the statement reads.

Canadians can watch the Falls change color via the Earth Cam.

The iconic landmark will join the rest of Canada in wearing red this Friday, with thousands of Canadians across the country donning the color in tribute to the victims.

Niagara Falls previously shone blue and white on Tuesday night to honour the 22 Canadians that lost their lives, including a teacher, nurse, retired firefighter, and a 17-year-old girl.

Canada will also hold an online, countrywide vigil tonight at 7 p.m. EST.
