Last night, Canada chose love over hate with vigils being held across the country for the victims of Sunday night’s attack on a mosque in Sainte Foy, Quebec.

In response, cities across Canada held vigils honouring the victims.

In Calgary, hundreds of people gathered outside of City Hall, lighting candles and holding signs denouncing the acts of violence and expressing support for the Muslim community in Canada. Young children, people of different faiths, firefighters, and members of the police came together to show that love and tolerance is what we need more of.

‘O Canada’ was sung in unison, candles were lit and messages of love were spread. Here are 11 photos and videos from last night’s vigil held in Calgary.
