On behalf of the over three million members of the Canadian Labour Congress, I extend my deepest condolences to the victims, friends, coworkers and families of those who were targeted in yesterday’s terrifying van attack in my hometown of Toronto.
While it may take some time to uncover the motivation behind this heinous act of violence, we can take comfort in the incredible outpouring of support for the families of the 10 deceased and numerous others who were injured in Monday’s assault.
Our thanks go to the courageous first responders who played such a significant role in bringing order, safety and support to a very chaotic downtown crime scene.
Our hearts are with the people of Toronto as they mourn the loss of the innocent victims to this tragedy.
Our actions, as they should, express love in the face of violence.
