Messages of support from across North America decorated the walls of the Centre culturel islamique de Québec during an open house organized to mark the first anniversary of the shooting.

On Jan. 29, 2017, the prayer room on the ground floor of the Centre culturel islamique de Québec was a scene of chaos – the red lights of police cars and ambulances flashed through the glass windows, as paramedics worked on the injured and blood seeped into the bright green carpeting. Walls were scarred with bullet holes.
