January 29, 2021
This week, you might have noticed people on TV and elsewhere wearing a green square. The annual "Green Square Campaign" was launched in 2020 as a reminder against the terrorist attack at a Quebec City mosque on January 29, 2017, when an Islamophobic white supremacist shot dead six Muslim men as they prayed. 
The Green Square Campaign now takes place in the week leading up to January 29 each year to remember  the victims and survivors of this attack, and all who were devastated by this hateful act. 
The "Green Square" represents a symbol of solidarity and hope towards building goodwill and better friendships.
