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.
"I hope that justice will be served and the sentence will reflect the crime that was committed", said Huot, La Presse Canadienne reported.
According to Canada's CBC news broadcaster, the judge ultimately dismissed a request to decree parole ineligibility periods stretching a total of 150 years, saying the request was "unreasonable".
Alexandre Bissonnette, 29, will have to serve 40 years - longer than usual - before he can apply for parole.
The 2017 shooting incident described as one of Canada's rarest mass shootings which Prime Minister Justin Trudeau denounced a "terrorist attack", provoked debate over new arrivals at a time when a growing number of migrants moved from the United States into Quebec.
The justice said that in the years leading up to the shooting, Bissonnette increasingly drank alcohol and experienced anxiety, depression, and suicidal thoughts.

Germany imposes limits on Facebook data collection

While reading his sentencing decision, the Quebec Superior Court judge said: "His crimes were truly motivated by race and a visceral hatred towards Muslim immigrants", but added that "punishment should not be vengeance".
The longest sentences to date in Canada is 75 years without parole, which has been handed down in five cases - all involving triple murders.
The Criminal Code was amended in 2011 to allow a judge to impose consecutive sentences in cases of multiple murder, but it was clear as Huot spent almost six hours reading the decision that he was wrestling with the constitutionality of the provision.
At the start of his trial in 2017, he said he had been suicidal, "swept away by fear and by awful despair", and deeply regretted his "unforgivable" actions. Bissonnette's parents were also present.
Huot agreed with the prosecution that Bissonnette's actions were exceptionally callous. More than 50 people were at the Quebec Islamic Cultural Centre in January 2017 when he began shooting during evening prayers. The sixth attempted murder charge related to others who were nearby in the mosque. "I am not a terrorist, I am not an Islamophobe". He referred to numerous attacks in Europe as well as the 2014 shooting in Ottawa outside Parliament and said he "lost it" after learning Canada was preparing to take in more refugees. He painted Bissonnette as a calculated killer who was "looking for glory" and targeted a group of people based on bigotry and hatred.
But Renald Beaudry, a criminal lawyer who was at Bissonnette's sentencing, doesn't think the sentence would be easy to overturn.
