Vigil in Sydney Tonight for Quebec Shooting Victims
A candlelight vigil to honour victims of the Quebec City mosque shooting will take place this evening at the Civic Centre in Sydney.
It gets underway at 6:00.
Meanwhile, the 27-year-old man accused of carrying out the attack has been charged with six counts of first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder while using a restricted firearm.
Alexandre Bissonnette made a brief court appearance last night and is due back in court on February 21st.
Police say they’re treating Sunday’s attack as a terrorist act and add Bissonnette could also face terrorism-related charges.
Six men were killed in the shooting and five people remain in hospital with injuries.
13 others suffered minor injuries and have been released from hospital.
