The city of Aylmer in Western Quebec is in shock today as one of it’s oldest, historical landmarks and the heart of the town, St. Pauls Church scorched down to it’s foundation in a brutal early morning fire
Investigating police say Arsen as the “mystery” of the burning heritage unfolds finding a gas can at the scene of the crime (reported by http://www.ctv.ca full story there)
I write this as a former resident of Aylmer, Quebec. My father remarried with his current wife there as well as many others have fond and sentimental memory of the old church. Thank goodness nobody was injured as it took place between midnight and 2am.
I am disgusted at anyone who would target an organization like a church, a place of worship, for whatever hate crime reason they did it in and I hope they are brought to justice. Very sad when it’s in a place once known as home.
God bless the good souls….
