On Sunday evening, around 500 Calgarians gathered at Olympic Plaza for a candlelight vigil held in remembrance of the Orlando nightclub massacre victims.

Early Sunday morning at Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, Florida, 50 people were killed and over 50 were injured when shots began ringing out at about 2 am local time.

The Calgary Tower, Langevin Bridge and Stephen avenue were lit in rainbow colours to show solidarity with the LGBTQ community. In Edmonton, flags at the legislature were lowered to half-staff.
