Two Quebec teachers killed in the terrorist attacks in Burkina Faso have left behind messages telling people to live their dreams.
Maude Carrier and Louis Chabot, two of six people from the Quebec City area on a humanitarian mission to build a school in Burkino Faso are seen in a Facebook video wishing Happy New Year to their students and speaking about their trip from a bustling street in the country's capital.
The video was recorded Jan. 6, just over a week before they were killed.
In her video, Carrier sends "hugs and kisses” to her students, urging them to make their dreams come true, while Chabot spoke about in his video the warm weather, saying they have been helping people a lot and that the “trip is going well.” Speaking about their upcoming exams, he tells his students, "I have confidence in you, don't give up!"
The video was posted by the Capitale school board in Quebec City. Four of the six Quebecers killed Friday in the attack in Ougadougou worked, or had at some time worked, for the school board as teachers.
