Montreal's Notre Dame Basilica Sounds Bells in Solidarity With Parisian Counterpart

Notre Dame Basilica in Montreal, Quebec, sounded its church bells at midday on April 15 in honor of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris which was ravaged by fire on the same date.

Footage tweeted by Robert Jago shows the Basilica sounding its bells at around lunch time.

In addition to the ringing of the cathedral’s bells, Montreal’s city hall also went completely dark to pay homage to the damaged cathedral in Paris, local media reports. Credit: Robert Jago via Storyful
