Hundreds of cars came out to the local drive-by car rally held Friday evening. It was a display of solidarity with the Muslim community after a London family was killed in what police have said was a targeted attack.
Three routes were laid out from Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge, which converged on the Regional Police headquarters in Cambridge. Local community leaders and politicians were on scene to show their support to everyone that showed up. Many of the cars were decorated in green, carrying signs calling out Islamophobia.
The attack in London left four members of a Muslim family dead. Their names are Yumna Afzaal, Madiha Salman, Talat Afzaal, and Salman Afzaal. The only family member to survive was nine-year-old Fayez. He remains in hospital in stable condition.
A fundraiser was created on Launchgood to support him and dedicate a charity project in the name the deceased. Over a million dollars has been raised so far. You can donate here.
A number of mental health supports have been made available locally for those affected by the news of the attack.
