A roadside memorial in Parksville Qualicum Beach honoured the victims of a deadly mass shooting in Nova Scotia.
The tribute was set up in the corner of Wright Road and Sunray Road in Parksville, part of a nationwide virtual vigil dedicated to the 22 lives lost, including an RCMP officer.
Residents who visited the memorial left flowers, ribbons, cards, balloons, candles and flags of Canada, B.C. and Nova Scotia to pay respects to the lives lost.
Among those who stopped by to mourn the losses were Qualicum First Nation Chief Michael Recalma and Oceanside RCMP Staff Sgt. Marc Pelletier, wearing his red serge to honour Const. Heidi Stevenson, a 23-year veteran of the RCMP, who was killed in the shooting.
The tribute will be up through Saturday at noon.
