HALIFAX – NDP Leader Gary Burrill made the following statement on yesterday’s shooting in Quebec City:

I share the revulsion and sorrow of the people of Canada in the face of the unspeakable tragedy yesterday in Quebec City. I extend my deepest, prayerful sympathy to those who have been engulfed in this dark moment.

I wish also, in this moment, to express the NDP’s commitment to every facet of the struggle against Islamophobia, xenophobia, and related forms of hatred and discrimination.

A Nova Scotia that is open, welcoming and safe for all, is our common purpose and our goal.
