NDP Statement on the Quebec City mosque Supreme Court ruling « Canada’s NDP

May 27, 2022 at 4:45 am  Federal, Politics

NDP Deputy Leader, Alexandre Boulerice, made the following statement:

“The Quebec City mosque shooting is one of the saddest moments in our country’s history. Six people were killed, and 19 others were injured. These individuals were targeted and killed just because they were Muslim. The Muslim community is still reeling from this horrific attack, and today’s court ruling must be very difficult for them to hear.

The NDP respects the independence of the Court, but as federal legislators we have a responsibility to take action to tackle hate head-on and to do everything in our power to avoid such a senseless tragedy from happening again.

Thoughts and prayers are not enough, we must act.

People deserve to feel safe in their communities. People who face Islamophobia, xenophobia and all forms of discrimination shouldn’t feel alone in this fight. They deserve to know that elected officials are on their side. And today, I want to reiterate that I will always stand with you as we work together toward a fairer, better future for everyone.”
