French consul, Winnipeg mayor attend vigil for Paris attack victims
WINNIPEG – A vigil for victims of the attacks on a Paris magazine was held at Winnipeg City Hall at 12:30 p.m. Thursday.
“We stand in solidarity against the perpetrators of this senseless act of violence,” Mayor Brian Bowman said at the vigil.
Bowman, Bruno Burnichon, honourary consul for France in Winnipeg, and members of council took part in the opportunity to offer condolences to those directly affected by the attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices, in which 12 people were slain Wednesday.
The vigil was in the mayor’s foyer on the second floor of Winnipeg City Hall’s council building.
