  • Men gather to pray inside the Quebec Islamic Cultural Centre where the Jan. 29 2017 attack took place

The gunman who opened fire inside a Canadian mosque in 2017, killing six Muslim men, has been sentenced to life in prison without the option of parole for at least 40 years.

Last March, Bissonnette pleaded guilty to six count of first-degree murder and six counts of attempted murder in the attack.

"29 January 2017 is a date that will remain written in blood in this city, this province, this country", he said, as reported by Radio-Canada, the French arm of national broadcaster CBC.

Under Canadian law, Bissonnette could have gone to prison for 150 years or 25 years for each of the six deaths.

During the sentencing phase, investigators said Bissonnette's online activity showed he was fascinated by serial killers and the alt-right movement and was a fan of US President Donald Trump's immigration policies.

Bissonnette will be eligible to go before the Parole Board of Canada after serving 40 years of his sentence, said Superior Court Justice François Huot.

"QUOTE " httSix men - Aboubaker Thabti, Abdelkrim Hassane, Khaled Belkacemi, Mamadou Tanou Barry, Ibrahima Barry and Azzedine Soufiane - were killed and 19 others were wounded in the shooting, including five critically.

Alexandre Bissonnette arrives at the court house in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. The defence also said it needs time to study the ruling.

As the 240-page verdict was read over a six-hour period, Bissonnette sat quietly in the packed courtroom, gazing at his feet while his parents and several friends and family of the victims wiped tears from their eyes.

While serial killer Bruce McArthur was handed 25 years of parole ineligibility in a Toronto courtroom this morning, the longest prison sentence in Canadian history could be handed out to another mass murderer.

On the other hand, the judge said, Bissonnette had no previous criminal record, he pleaded guilty and he expressed remorse.

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

A decision on sentencing was originally expected in October, but Huot pushed that back, saying he needed more information on some legal questions, including the constitutionality of consecutive life sentences.

Huot said Bissonnette's actions in entering the mosque at the end of prayers and shooting congregants were not a terrorist attack, but motivated by prejudice, particularly toward Muslim immigrants.
