A vigil brought out hundreds of supporters in front of Toronto City Hall on Saturday afternoon for the victims of the deadly terrorist attacks in Paris, France.
Mayor John Tory was on hand and told the crowd at Nathan Phillips Square that we cannot succumb to acts of terror or evil and that Toronto is a place of open arms, which will not change.
There will be a show of solidarity at Nathan Phillips Square at 12:30 p.m. Sunday.
The International Centre for Human rights in Canada has planned a march from Nathan Phillips Square to the consulate on Bloor Street.
In Montreal, thousands gathered at the French consulate near the corner of McGill College and Ste-Catherine Street West.
There will also be another vigil at 10 a.m. Sunday in mid-town Montreal.
At last check, at least 129 people were killed and 352 injured with 99 in critical condition.
ISIS has issued a statement taking ownership for the deadly incident, which still has Paris in shock and on high alert.
Belgium’s justice minister reports that a number of arrests have been made in Brussels in connection to the attacks.
