Vigil to be Held in Mississauga 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.
The Muslim Council of Peel and DawaNet will be hosting a vigil tomorrow (Saturday, March 16) at Celebration Square.
The vigil, which will run from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m., will be open to all members of the public.
Additionally, Mayor Bonnie Crombie has requested that the city’s flags be lowered to honour the 49 victims who lost their lives in the shooting.
“Diversity is our strength — it is not a threat. We must always seek to fill our hearts with love, not hate,” Crombie said.
#Mississauga is lowering all flags & dimming our clock tower red & blue tonight to honour the 49 lives lost & those injured in this senseless tragedy. Diversity is our strength - it is not a threat. We must always seek to fill our hearts with love, not hate. #NewZealandStrongpic.twitter.com/DzypD4tWXT— Bonnie Crombie (@BonnieCrombie) March 15, 2019
