The vigil, which runs from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., is being hosted by the Lynn Valley Lions.
A drive-through candlelight vigil is planned for Saturday night in Lynn Valley for the North Vancouver stabbing victims.
One woman died and six others were injured after a man went on a knife rampage at the Lynn Valley library. One man has been charged with second-degree murder.
The vigil, which runs from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., is being hosted by the Lynn Valley Lions. The vigil entrance is east on Ross Road, follows Ross Road, and ends up on Peters Road.
All vigil attendees are asked to remain in the vehicles because of COVID-19.
A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help one of the stabbing victims Susanne Till, a single mom of three children. The campaign organizer says her injuries are extensive and life-changing, and at this time it is unknown if she will need more surgery.
Meantime, the man accused in the attack appeared in provincial court on Thursday.
Yannick Bandaogo, 28, who faces a single charge of second-degree murder, attended the provincial court hearing via video link wearing a white prison outfit and a bandage on his arm.
Police have said shortly after Bandaogo was arrested near the scene of the stabbing at the Lynn Valley library last Saturday that he underwent surgery for self-inflicted wounds.
The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team has said Bandaogo has links to Quebec and doesn’t appear connected to any of the stabbing victims, who ranged in age from 22 to 78.
