The similarities are striking between the truck ram attack on a Muslim family in London and the attack on the Grand Mosque in Quebec, says sociology doctoral student Sophie Marois.

She was present in the Ontario Superior Court in Windsor throughout the trial of Nathaniel Veltman.

She also belongs to the citizen committee January 29 I remember in solidarity with the victims of the attack on the Grand Mosque of Quebec.

The attacks themselves same are ideologically linked, but we also discovered through the legal process that the authors are inspired by each other, notes Sophie Marois. She describes these similarities as disturbing.

According to her, it is important to forge links between the two cities.

The guilty verdict pronounced by the jurors does not make it possible to determine, within the meaning of the law, whether the action was considered an act of terrorism.

Also read :

The judge explained to them that, if the accused had planned the actions and deliberately committed the murders or if he had carried them out with the aim of spreading terror, just one of these conclusions without a reasonable doubt was sufficient for a verdict of premeditated murder.

The legal path taken by jurors in their deliberations is confidential.

The judge could, however, draw this conclusion from the examination of the facts during the sentencing hearings.
