Winnipeg Fans Carry “Oh, Canada” in Tribute to the Fallen
- Updated: October 24, 2014
I’ve been struck all week by the show of solidarity and respect by Canadians all across that nation following the shooting deaths of Patrice Vincent and Nathan Cirillo.
The incredible Highway of Heroes spectacle. The universal rallying. It spoke volumes to me about that culture and its people…while reminding me of where we may often fall short here in these United States.
On Friday night, the spirit of Canada, and their tribute to the fallen, was again on display. This time it could be heard and felt during the pre-game moments of Jets-Lightning in Winnipeg. Here’s what transpired before the puck dropped. Powerful stuff. Stick tap, Canada.
