Approximately 130 people gathered at the steps in front of Prince George City Hall on Tuesday evening during a vigil that was held in honour of members of the Afzal-Salmans, a Muslim family who recently lost a grandmother, a mother, a father, and a daughter in a premeditated act when they were struck by a vehicle and ran over by a 20-yr-old man while out for a walk in London, Ontario on June 6th. A nine-year-old boy was also struck but survived the ordeal with serious injuries and has since been released from hospital.
