In memory of the victims of the New Zealand mosque attacks, Brampton City Council is hosting a candlelight vigil this week.

Last Friday a gunman entered two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand opening fire on innocent bystanders participating in Friday prayer. 51 people were killed, and an investigation is still ongoing.

The vigil will be held on Thursday, March 21 from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Ken Whillans Square just outside of city hall. A number of city councillors are expected to be in attendance.

The city has also set up a digital book where condolences can be offered. All messages that are submitted will be printed and shared through the New Zealand High Commission for the community of Christchurch.
