Hundreds gather for vigil at University of Toronto in memory of those killed at Quebec City mosque

Feb 3rd, 2017 | Posted In : News and Initiatives

Hundreds gathered at U of T’s downtown Toronto campus on January 30th to remember the six people murdered at a Quebec City mosque on Sunday.

Students, faculty, politicians and leaders of different faiths called for peace and inclusion.

“Without love, without hope, without support, we have nothing but walls,” Dalia Hashim, the president of U of T’s Muslim Student Association, told the crowd.

“And that’s not the future we want for the Canada we live in.”  

Vigils had been planned at both Ryerson University and U of T but organizers combined their events. Students and faculty from both institutions were joined by Toronto Mayor John Tory, federal Finance Minister Bill Morneau, Iqra Khalid, MP for Mississauga – Erin Mills, Omar Alghabra, MP for Mississauga Centre, and members of the community.
