Monuments Turn Green on Quebec Shooting Anniversary

Niagara Falls, Edmonton High Level Bridge, Calgary Tower and other Canadian monuments will be lit green to mark the 5th anniversary of the shooting at the Islamic Cultural Centre in Québec City.

“As community members turn their hearts and minds towards commemoration, let’s make sure to remember with them,” the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) wrote.

“As we reflect on this dark episode in Canadian history, let’s walk with those who remain resilient in the quest for a country free from Islamophobia and hate.”
