Ex-student to serve 40 years for killings
Alexandre Bissonnette, a 29-year-old former politics student fixated on President Donald Trump, the far right and Muslims, was sentenced Friday to life in prison without the possibility of parole for 40 years for shooting six people dead in an attack on a mosque in Quebec City in January 2017.
During the attack, Bissonette shot several worshippers in the head. Nineteen people were wounded, including one paralyzed for life. Muslim leaders, including the mosque’s president, Mohamed Labidi, had said a maximum sentence was justified, given the horrors of a crime that had deeply shaken Canada and the Muslim community.
