Social media has lit up in reaction to Friday evening’s deadly terror attacks in Paris. As of this hour, officials in Paris have confirmed that at least 153 people have been killed in the attacks, including 113 people at a sold-out concert hall.

The attacks were highly synchronized across the French capital, with terrorists using explosives and rifles to carry out their plans.


Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made an address shortly before boarding his plane to attend the G20 Summit in Antalya, Turkey.

“Our hearts and thoughts and prayers go out to our French cousins in this dark and terrible time,” said Trudeau. “We have offered all of our help and support to the government of France. We’ll continue to engage with our allies around the world in ensuring the safety of Canadians and others both here at home and around the world.”

Here is a social media recap of what Canadian leaders across the country have been saying about the Paris terror attacks:
