Tim McLean birthday vigil

Friends and family of Tim McLean gathered in a grove in front of the Manitoba Legislative Building Wednesday night to celebrate what would have been his 27th birthday. McLean was murdered while riding a bus en route to Winnipeg on July 28, 2008.

On a windy, frigid night about 15 friends and family members held candles, shared stories, and passed around pictures of McLean.

This was the first year a birthday vigil has been held for McLean, and his mother, Carol de Delley, says that she does not intend to hold a vigil every year for her son.
