Last night, Londoners gathered at Victoria Park in remembrance of the Quebec City mosque shooting. The shooting was a violent reminder to a growing problem here in Canada. Whether we like it or not, Islamophobia is here. We can choose to shy away from it. We can choose to ignore it. Or, we can stand against it. On February 1, 2017, Londoners made their choice- to stand in solidarity with the muslim community .
Looking through the crowd, one couldn't hep but notice the diversity. Sikhs, Christians and Jews had all gathered here tonight to offer their condolences and show their support.
