Mr. PG will be illuminated with red light as part of the national Day of Visibility for the Entertainment and Events Industry on Tuesday.
The roadside landmark will be one of several Canadian sites lit up in solidarity for arts and entertainment workers unemployed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Mr. PG will be bathed in red light starting after sunset on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
"Live event workers across Canada and around the globe were among the first to lose jobs, and all current direction is pointing towards event workers being among the last to return to work," local organizer Kyle Sampson said in a press release. "Production personnel, artists, athletes, caterers, display companies, venue staff, and many others are struggling to survive the uncertainty of their industry’s future."
Similar campaigns to the one in Canada have taken place in the United States, U.K., Spain, Netherlands and Germany.
"This is not a protest," Sampson added. "This initiative is an effort to remind Canadians and Canadian leaders that event workers have been told to standby for the health and safety of our country and world, however that event workers are ready, and keen to return to work as soon as it is deemed safe."
