A candlelight vigil is planned on Vancouver Island to honour two young girls found dead in Oak Bay on Christmas Day.
The vigil, which will take place Saturday night, hopes to bring together a quiet community that is still coping with a tragedy that took the lives of six-year-old Chloe Berry and her four-year-old sister Aubrey.

Bernard Richard, the province’s representative for children and youth, says his office is collecting information about the girls and their parenting situation but adds that it’s too early to say whether a formal investigation will be launched.
No charges have been filed yet in connection with the deaths.
Court documents show the mother and father were involved in a custody dispute that included unpaid child support.
