COMMUNITY GATHERING PLANNED – The minaret at the Whitehorse mosque is backdropped by the moon at about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday. At noon Friday, there will be a gathering at the Front Street healing totem pole to show support for Whitehorse’s Muslim community in the wake of 50 Muslims recently murdered in Christchurch, New Zealand. Participants will then walk to the Whitehorse Mosque for tea and coffee.

WATER WORLD – An overflowing creek by Quartz Road led to a large, temporary pond being formed by The Feed Store on Monday afternoon. The rapid early melting may have been instrumental for the overflow. Motorists proceeded cautiously while city crews pumped the water off the streets.

PROVIDING WORDS OF COMFORT – After Friday’s prayers were held at the Whitehorse mosque, three local politicians spoke: Yukon MP Larry Bagnell, Mayor Dan Curtis and Highways and Public Works Minister Richard Mostyn. The latter is seen above with Muhammad Javed. Flowers were left on the steps of the Whitehorse mosque in the wake of Friday’s mass shootings that killed 50 worshippers at mosques in New Zealand.
