To mark World AIDS Day and Aboriginal AIDS Awareness Week, a red ribbon made of candles will light up the B.C. Legislature steps.
Taking place on Sunday from 5 to 6 p.m., AIDS Vancouver Island will be joined by Resistance Rising Choir to support those who are affected by HIV or AIDS in their life. Attendees are asked to wear a red ribbon to show solidarity for the cause.
Research shows that in Canada 25 per cent of people living with HIV are unaware that they have the virus because they’ve never been tested.
