Tributes and memorials continue to pour in for the 22 people killed in a mass shooting in Nova Scotia one week ago.
An obituary for Lisa McCully says her friends and family will celebrate her life during a private funeral Sunday that will also be broadcast online.
The 49-year-old mother of two was one of 22 people killed when a shooter dressed in an RCMP uniform went on a 12-hour rampage across northern Nova Scotia that began last Saturday night.
Obituaries published online in local newspapers suggest other families are mourning privately, or choosing to wait until COVID-19 is contained to hold services.
Despite distancing restrictions due to the pandemic, Canadians have found ways to pay tribute, including piling flowers by roadside memorials, lighting candles, or posting heartfelt musical tributes online.
On Saturday, hundreds of vehicles including dirt bikes and trucks formed a motorcade in Wyses Corner, Nova Scotia, in honour of 36-year-old Joey Webber, who was shot by the gunman while running a family errand.
