Four Years Later – Nova Scotia Pauses To Remember

Nova Scotians are encouraged to observe a moment of silence at noon on the upcoming Thursday and Friday, as the province commemorates the fourth anniversary of the tragic events of April 18-19, 2020. This act of remembrance serves to honor those lost and affected by the events on those days.

Premier Tim Houston shared his thoughts on the significance of this remembrance. “As each day, week, and month passes since the events of April 18 and 19, we continue to reflect and remember those lives lost and honor the survivors and all those who have been impacted,” he said. “As a province, we must continue to support each other and work together to make changes to prevent something like this from happening again.”

In further observance, flags will be lowered to half-mast at Province House and all provincial government buildings and institutions from sunrise on April 18 to sunset on April 19. The public, including businesses and community organizations that fly flags, are also encouraged to lower their flags to half-mast during these two days.

The remembrance might bring back painful memories and affect individuals in different ways. Those in need of emotional support are encouraged to contact a community resource navigator by calling 211. Additionally, anyone experiencing a mental health crisis can reach out to the provincial mental health and addictions crisis line at any time by calling 1-888-429-8167. Information on mental health services and support is also available online at the Nova Scotia government’s mental health webpage.
