Vigil held for Metropolis Shooting victims
Marlene Gauthier fought back tears as she kneeled next to the vigil for her boyfirend Denis Blanchette at the Metropolis front door.
"He was the man of my life for 15 years," Gauthier said.
Over 500 people went to share their concolences for Blanchette at the concert hall.
Many shared their thoughts at a microphone set up facing the crowd gathered on Ste. Catherine's Street.
Blanchette was shot and killed on Tuesday night at Metropolis during Pauline Marois acceptance speech.
He was working backstage as a technician for the rally, and was near the backdoor when Richard Henry Bain tried to enter.
Bain allegedly fired a gun, hitting two people, killing Blanchette.
Bain uttered anti-francophone comments during his arrest, prompting many to suspect the attack was against Pauline Marois and her party's platform to extend powers to Quebec's language laws.
"We've had peace between anglophones and francophones for decades now," said Newly Elected PQ MNA Daniel Breton. "This is not about language."
