Vigil to be Held in Brampton for Victims of New Zealand Shooting
The city is planning to honour the victims of a shooting that happened at two mosques in New Zealand on Friday.
A candlelight vigil will be held on Thursday, March 21 at Ken Whillans Square near City Hall.
The vigil will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. that evening and open to all members of the public.
Mayor Patrick Brown responded to the incident on Friday morning with a Twitter statement.
“Islamophobia must be stopped. This latest senseless act of terror on innocent worshippers praying at the mosque is beyond evil,” Brown said.
Peel Police officers were deployed to visit mosques throughout the region during Friday prayers.
“My thoughts and prayers are with the victims & families of today's terrorist incident in New Zealand.”
