Event in memory of family killed in London hate crime
Flags at all municipal locations in Chatham-Kent are lowered to commemorate the lives of four members of London’s Muslim community killed in a hate crime Sunday.
“We stand in solidarity with the Muslim community,” said Mayor Darrin Canniff in a media release. “Hatred and violence have no place in our country. No one should be alienated and live in fear because of the colour of their skin, their manner of dress or their religion.”
Canniff has been invited to speak at a vigil being held Wednesday evening at 6:30 p.m. at the Tecumseh Park band shell.
The socially distanced event is being sponsored by the Chatham-Kent Muslim Association and is open to all members of the community.
