To honor the victims of this senseless act of violence, for the last three years, Montreal has been erecting pillars of blue light on top of Mount Royal.

There are 14 pillars in total, one for each of the victims.

A company called Moment Factory had the honor of putting the memorial together, and it is quite spectacular. It's a wonderful way to honor everyone who was affected by this tragic event.
