Beginning tonight, the home of the Vancouver Canucks will glow pink to honour healthcare and frontline workers.
Rogers Arena is equipped with outdoor lights, which typically light up blue and green.

It’s the latest initiative to show appreciation for the many people who work in essential services that are risking their health during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Last week Vancouverites began applauding from their balconies as a show of support for healthcare workers. That has continued every night since, with increasing popularity, at 7 pm.

The Canucks have also encouraged making noise at 7 pm, but with a hockey twist.
