On November 6 2017 Constable John Davidson of the Abbotsford Police Department was shot and killed in the line of duty. The Memorial Ribbon Society approached a number of local landmarks in an effort to turn their lights ‘blue’ to show support for John Davidson and the ‘thin blue line’. Several Vancouver-area buildings, including BC Place, Rogers Arena, Vancouver City Hall, as well as many other landmarks and cities across Canada, switched their lights to ‘blue’ for the night.
Photography artist Mado El Khouly took a photo of the Vancouver waterfront with its ‘blue lights’ and posted it on the Internet. The Society contacted Mado whom graciously gave us permission to use his photo to create a tribute poster. We called it ‘Blue Lights’, for obvious reasons. Money raised through the sale of the posters will go towards the Memorial Ribbon Scholarship for the children of fallen officers.
