IAS MEDIA RELEASE - QUEBEC SHOOTING

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – January 30, 2017.

 “Muslims in Saskatoon are joining fellow Canadians in expressing outrage and sharing in the grief, following the horrendous events that unfolded last night in Sainte-Foy, Quebec City.  There is no justification for any such criminal acts of violence and terrorism wherever and whenever they occur.  We send out thoughts and prayers to those injured, and the friends and families of the victims.  We pray that justice will be brought to those who carried out these atrocities. We are thankful for the outpouring of sympathy and notes of solidarity that we have received from many in Saskatoon.  It is this coming together, particularly at times when incidents like this seek to divide, that gives us hope and strengthens us as a nation.”
