Quebec mosque shooter Alexandre Bissonnette to be sentenced Friday

A Quebec City court handed a life sentence on Friday to the gunman who fatally shot six members of a Quebec mosque in 2017.

According to CBC, the now 29-year-old Bissonnette will serve an automatic life sentence for shooting and killing the men during a prayer at the Centre Culturel Islamique de Québec on January 29, 2017.

While he did not strike down the section, he rewrote it to give himself the discretion to deliver consecutive life sentences that are not in blocks of 25 years, as had been the case.

The convict identified as Alexandre Bissonnette, 29, pleaded guilty to six counts of first degree murder and six counts of attempted murder for the attack, but he will however be eligible for parole after 40 years. The murder victims were Mamadou Tanou Barry, 42; Abdelkrim Hassane, 41; Khaled Belkacemi, 60; Aboubaker Thabti, 44; Azzeddine Soufiane, 57; and Ibrahima Barry, 39.

In court on Friday, Huot told Bissonnette, wearing a blue blazer and white shirt, to leave the prisoners' box and stand in front of him.

"We were astonished, we were very upset after this sentence", Derbali said. Specifically, the attack came days after President Donald Trump announced his Muslim immigration ban and Justin Trudeau responded by saying Canada is open to refugees.

Lawyers for both the defence and the prosecution said they needed time to analyse the judge's lengthy decision amid the possibility of an appeal.

"Time goes by quickly", he said.

Several people in the Quebec City courtroom wept as the judge read a detailed account of the shooter's actions on the night of the crime.

He was awoken by deputies but then tried to get out the vehicle while the auto was in drive. After he was awakened, Larson began to get out of the truck without putting it in park.

Huot noted that witnesses at his sentencing hearing testified that he had been severely bullied in school and had a documented history of mental health problems.

"It's very hard, I would imagine, to really find true closure on a day like today", she said, adding that people's hearts were with the families of the victims and the entire Quebec City mosque community. Hout ruled on a life sentence with the eligibility of parole only after 40 years.

The judge read out segments of his 246-page decision as a packed courtroom sat for six hours.

The longest prison sentence in Canada to date is 75 years without parole, which has been given to at least five triple killers since the law was changed to allow consecutive sentences.

Crown prosecutors Thomas Jacques (L) and Francois Godin (R) walk before talking to the press in the Quebec City Courthouse following the sentencing of perpetrator Alexandre Bissonnette, on February 8, 2019.

Silver agreed that the Bissonnette sentencing is also likely to be appealed, and she believes that's a good thing.

Ahmed Cheddadi, who was wounded in the attack, said the sentence was appropriate in that he found it unlikely that Bissonnette would ever be released.

At the start of his trial in 2017, he said he had been suicidal, "swept away by fear and by disgusting despair", and deeply regretted his "unforgivable" actions.

Following hearings previous year, the sentence was expected to be handed down in October, but the judge delayed it to have more time to ponder his decision. More than 50 people were at the Islamic Cultural Centre in January 2017 when he began shooting during evening prayers.
