Dozens of Canadian Muslims gathered on the steps of the Manitoba Legislative Building on Sunday afternoon to speak out against the recent deaths of two Canadian soldiers.
Canadians across the country have been mourning the recent killings of Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent and Cpl. Nathan Cirillo. Both soldiers were murdered in separate attacks last month by apparent jihadist sympathizers.
The deaths may have led to a spike of anti-Muslim attacks, and Sunday's rally was aimed at showing that the vast majority of Canadian Muslims do not share the beliefs of the killers.
