After the deaths of four members of the same family in London, and left one child in hospital, a community walk is planned at 6 p.m. June 12  in Vaughan to show solidarity.
“No one deserves to have a fear of walking with their family in public,” read the flyer of Muslim Women of Vaughan, the group organizng the walk.

London Police said Nathaniel Veltman, 20, intentionally drove a truck into the family out for a walk on Sunday evening, and that he targeted them because of their faith.
Veltman is facing four counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted murder.
Muslim Women of Vaughan said the walk is, to honour the Afzaal family, which is dealing with this "hate-filled, Islamophoic terrorist attack.”

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau described the attack in London as an act of terrorism
The route will start from Vellore Village Community Centre to Rutherford and Weston roads and back.
