Other Vigils / Memorials . . .

From the Toronto Star: Victims’ kin seek leaders’ input

“…Elaine Lumley said she is also looking for a way to make handguns an election issue. She is organizing a vigil at Nathan Phillips Square this Friday [ January 6, 2006] at 7 p.m. for her late son, Aidan Lumley, on what would have been his 21st birthday.

The Trent University student and swim champion was shot in the back outside the Vinyl Lounge nightclub in Montreal during a visit to celebrate a friend’s birthday. No arrests have been made.

“I don’t know what to do, to be quite honest, and I don’t know what the politicians can do,” said Lumley, a theatre stage manager who raised her only son as a single mother.

“I’ve never even seen a gun.”
