While at an event at the University of Calgary yesterday, Mayor Nenshi talked about the terrible news of the act of terror in Quebec City over the weekend.
- Terrorist attack at Quebec City mosque leaves 6 dead
- 11 photos and videos from last night's vigil in Calgary honouring the victims of Quebec City
- Lights to go out on Eiffel Tower in Paris to honour Quebec City terror attack victims
- Prime Minister Trudeau responds to terrorist attack on Quebec City mosque
The mayor noted his great sadness over the shooting but said it was not because he was a fellow Muslim brother, but rather because we are all fellow citizens.
“My heart doesn’t break because I am Muslim. My heart breaks because I am human.”
Mayor Nenshi reflected on how we are not immune to hatred in this community but that this is an important time for all Canadians to stand up to it together, from coast to coast to coast, with our political leaders of all stripes, and with people of all faiths and backgrounds.
