"We love Canada!" members of Hamilton's Ahmadiyya Muslim community chanted as they marched through the cold rain near city hall on Friday afternoon.
The group of about 60 staged the rally and march in solidarity with those mourning the loss of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and warrant officer Patrice Vincent, who were both killed last weeks in acts that have been linked — fairly or not — to Islamic extremism.
Imam Hanan Sobhi said his community has already "categorically and unequivocally" condemned the attacks, but wanted to do more.
