Members of the LGBT community in Toronto have hosted a candlelight vigil mourning the victims of recent tragedies in the Canadian city. On Sunday (June 3), the Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto held a vigil to remember the lives of people lost in the multiple tragedies in the city in the last year. Serial killer Bruce McArthur was this year charged with the murder of eight men – but was only arrested after years of bungled investigations into mysterious disappearances within the city’s gay community. Details of McArthur’s alleged crimes have shaken Toronto’s LGBT community and prompted harsh criticism of the city’s police for reportedly bungling the investigation. The vigil was held days after the official opening of Toronto Pride on Friday.
