Politicians from the various levels of government and Muslim leaders used the opportunity to call for greater tolerance and openness not only in Quebec but across the country.
”It is with a heavy heart that we come together this afternoon to grieve the loss of these innocent lives,” said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
”But as a community and country, together we will rise from this darkness stronger and more unified than ever”.
There were also prayers for the other three killed.
A funeral for them will be held at the Quebec City convention centre Friday afternoon.
