Thursday night, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will travel to Laval, Quebec to take part in a candlelight ceremony being organised to remember the victims of the tragic daycare bus accident.

In the suburb north of Montreal where the tragedy occurred on Wednesday morning, a communal event is being planned. A city bus crashed into the front of a daycare centre shortly after 8:30 a.m., killing two toddlers, both under the age of four.

Six more kids were hurt and sent to nearby hospitals in an ambulance. The vigil will take place at the same church where locals met to comfort one another on Wednesday night following the catastrophe, the Église Sainte-Rose-de-Lima, at 6:30 p.m., the city’s mayor Stéphane Boyer stated on Twitter.
