Thousands pack London, Ont. vigil as PM Justin Trudeau calls attack on Muslim family an 'act of evil

Thousands packed Oxford Street in a show of solidarity for a vigil Tuesday night for the victims in a vehicle attack where police say a Muslim family was intentionally struck, killing four members and injuring a young boy.


Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expressed his sympathies as he denounced the Sunday's "act of evil."


"You are not alone. All Canadians mourn with you and stand with you, tonight and always," he said.

Trudeau acknowledged the effect Islamophobia has had on Muslims across the country. "Islamophobia is real. Racism is real. You should not have to face hate in your communities, in your country. We can and we will act. We can and we will choose a better way."
