Communities across Nova Scotia are reeling after one of the deadliest mass shootings in Canadian history.

It's been a week of loss, mourning and vigils to honour the victims — all while maintaining physical distancing requirements because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Canadians have offered words of support for those left behind.

Today, Duncan McCue in Toronto will be joined by Bob Murphy in Halifax, as we open the airwaves so Canadians can come together with "virtual casseroles" and offer words of support. 

Our question this week: How did you get to the other side of tragedy?

Plus, live performances by N.S. singer-songwriter Jenn Grant and N.S. fiddler Natalie MacMaster.
