Scandanavian centre opens doors for local condolences for Norway's victims

Residents can pay their respects at Scandanavian community centre.

Residents of Vancouver keen to register their sympathy for the victims of last week's attacks in Norway have been given an official way to do so.

Canadian Press has the story:

OTTAWA -- The Norwegian embassy in Ottawa is opening up a book of condolences for Canadians to sign in the wake of last week's attacks.

In Vancouver, Canadians can pay their respects at the Scandinavian cultural centre.

Police in Norway say more than 90 people were killed in a bomb blast outside a government building and subsequent shooting at a youth camp.

A man arrested in connection with the attacks made his first court appearance today.

The Ottawa embassy says they'll open their doors to the Canadian public between noon and two p.m. today and tomorrow.

There will also be a book of condolences at their Toronto consulate available all week from 10 a.m. to noon.
