It was just before 8 p.m. on Jan. 29, 2017, when a lone gunman entered the Islamic Cultural Centre of Quebec City and open fired, killing six people and injuring 19.

One year later, around the same time, a large group of Ottawa locals gathered at the Human Rights Memorial in front of city hall to remember the lives lost to Islamophobia. The vigil itself was organized by the National Council for Canadian Muslims (NCCM), and was part of several vigils taking place across Canada.
