PM Trudeau Calls Attack on Mosque a “Terrorist Attack”

The Canadian PM Justin Trudeau reacted to the Mosque attack in Quebec City and mourned the lives of the victims and calling the attack a “Terrorist Attack.”

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, issued the following statement today after hearing of the fatal shooting at the Centre culturel islamique de Québec located in the Ste-Foy neighbourhood of the city of Québec:

“It was with tremendous shock, sadness and anger that I heard of this evening’s tragic and fatal shooting at the Centre culturel islamique de Québec located in the Ste-Foy neighbourhood of the city of Québec.

“We condemn this terrorist attack on Muslims in a centre of worship and refuge.

“On behalf of all Canadians, Sophie and I offer our deepest condolences to the family and friends of all those who have died, and we wish a speedy recovery to those who have been injured.

“While authorities are still investigating and details continue to be confirmed, it is heart-wrenching to see such senseless violence. Diversity is our strength, and religious tolerance is a value that we, as Canadians, hold dear.

“Muslim-Canadians are an important part of our national fabric, and these senseless acts have no place in our communities, cities and country. Canadian law enforcement agencies will protect the rights of all Canadians, and will make every effort to apprehend the perpetrators of this act and all acts of intolerance.

“In this dark hour, let us strive to be the best version of ourselves. Last night’s horrible crime against the Muslim community was an act of terror committed against Canada, and against all Canadians. We will mourn, and we will heal, together. Canadians will not be intimidated.” Justin Trudeau
