The Canadian Forces’ Snowbirds took to the air on a Sunday (about two years ago) as part of their cross-Canada tour inspiring hope during the COVID-19 pandemic. Snow and hail hit the city on Saturday but on Sunday’s mild Mother’s Day their planes took off. The Snowbirds were without a doubt expected to show up and they did. After flying over Toronto and landing at Pearson International, the pilots kept on with their next destination set for just after noon. By the close of that day there were already 35 new deaths and 308 new coronavirus cases confirmed in Ontario.
