This is definitely one of the coolest displays of solidarity I have ever seen. After the tragedy that was the Ottawa shooting in Canada, the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins decided to play Canada’s national anthem “O Canada” in support of Canada and everyone affected by the horrible incident.
Prior to their game against the Philadelphia Flyers, they got anthem singer Jeff Jimerson to perform “O Canada” in front of the crowd. The lyrics were also displayed for the fans to sing along and many of them did. The gesture was heartfelt and it’s truly inspiring to watch.
We wish everyone affected by the Ottawa, Canada shooting all the best and we’re uplifted by the fact the Penguins played O Canada in support of all Canadians!
