Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Conservative Party interim leader Rona Ambrose release statements following the attacks


Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has issued this statement following attacks in Paris, France that have left at least 100 people dead:

“I am shocked and saddened that so many people have been killed and injured today in a number of terrorist attacks in Paris, France, and that many others are being held hostage.

“As the situation continues to unfold, Sophie and I join all Canadians in extending our deepest condolences to the families and friends of those killed. It is our sincere hope that the hostages are freed unharmed as soon as possible. We also wish a speedy recovery to all those who have been injured.

“Canada stands with France at this dark time and offers all possible assistance. We will continue to work closely with the international community to help prevent these terrible, senseless acts.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of France and we mourn their loss.”

Interim Conservative Party leader Rona Ambrose has issued the following statement:

“My thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of those who lost their lives and those injured in the terrorist attacks today in Paris, and we pray for the safe release of the hostages currently being held.

“Let there be no mistake, Canada and Canadians stand with France on this tragic day. We call for swift action to bring those responsible to justice.

“Neither Canada, nor our allies, will be intimidated by terrorists. No matter who is responsible for these heinous attacks, we will continue to stand firmly with our allies. We will continue to protect the rights and freedoms that define us as Canadians from those who wish to take them away, and strive to ensure Canada remains the peaceful, open, and free nation we value so much.”

  1. Really JT you said on the campaign trail this was not a fight (isis) that Canada should be involved with. You vow to let more into our Country, pull out attacks with coalition against these thugs. Want to pull our planes, troops etc. out of these regions!

    Rona Ambrose, thanks on behalf of all Canadians. Powerful statement and what REAL Canadians want. Too bad we now have an un-experienced, arrogant JT that will lead this Country to further alienation with our allies. He could care a less about our troops, our people, our Country with his nonchalant attitude on Isis, etc. Anyone older than he has seen what has been happening all over the world with these thugs and yet this (will not call him my PM) JT is going to create havoc and endanger our Military, Air Force, Navy etc…all to get elected at all costs. Sick world we live in and sick methodology from a PM.

    • And, of course, there are always idiots like Kate57 who will crawl out from under their rocks right on cue to politicize a tragedy. Morons.
