Calgary, AB (January 30, 2017): Dr. David Swann issued the following statement in reaction to last night’s shooting at the Centre Culturel Islamique de Québec in Sainte-Foy:
“Words too often fail us during tragedies like these. My heart goes out to the victims of this despicable and unthinkable act, and the loved ones they leave behind.
“It is heartbreaking to see such malice directed at innocent people in their time of prayer. I join with those across the country in standing in solidarity with our Muslim neighbours and friends, and condemn the hatred and bigotry which birthed this heinous attack.”
