Even when things seem darkest, you can always find a glimmer of hope.
Last night, in response to Sunday night's terrorist attack targeting a Québec City mosque, thousands upon thousands across Canada took to the streets in cities and towns, large and small, for vigils honouring the victims.
Canada has a lot of problems we need to figure out when it comes to racism, but the thousands of Canadians spontaneously showing up at vigils from coast to coast to coast are an example of a good way to respond to hate – by showing you're willing to get up and stand in defiance of hate.
