Vigil held in Terrace for Quebec shooting victims

Close to a dozen people took part in a candle light vigil at the Terrace Women's Resource Centre Society last night to remember the victims of the Quebec mosque shooting on Sunday night.

Elena Kusaka spearheaded the vigil and says it was also a chance to take a stand against racism and islamophobia.

"This is an issue that has been going on for a very long time." said Kusaka.

"Unfortunately its come too a head of sorts in this terrible way. But we just wanted to take a stand and say that we're not going to tolerate hatred or violence."

Six men were shot dead and 19 others were injured in what authorities have called a terrorist attack during evening prayers.

Alexandre Bissonnette made a brief court appearance on Monday, where he was arraigned on six counts of first-degree murder and five counts of attempted murder
