LCCC stands in solidarity against Islamophobia & all forms of racism and discrimination



January 29 is a date that Muslims in Quebec and the rest of Canada will forever mourn. Islamophobic‘s took the innocent lives of six Muslim men, as they prayed at the Islamic Cultural Centre of Quebec City. Many more were injured.
