On Tuesday afternoon, Vancouver city council approved a motion to designate January 29 as a Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia.

The motion was introduced earlier by City Councillor Jean Swanson and will mark the third anniversary of the Quebec Mosque Massacre.

“We hope that in designating this day, the City of Vancouver will make a commitment to developing a policy and action to fight Islamophobia and all other forms of bigotry,” said Imtiaz Popat from the Coalition Against Bigotry.

It was on January 29, 2017, that a gunman entered the Islamic Cultural Centre mosque in Quebec City and opened fire on dozens of Muslim worshipers.
