Stupid Edmonton Comments…

I gave up after three, but at least this was acknowledged as a terrorist attack…

“In the coming days, political leadership will be key for uniting citizens, while setting a tone of defiant resilience… Let us join vigils, pray together and offer compassionate solidarity with the victims. We are stronger together. And let us remain vigilant against those who exploit this attack to spread hatred against Muslims.” – Sheema Khan, “After Edmonton attack, vigilance and defiance” – Globe & Mail, Oct. 1st, 2017.

“We cannot – and will not – let violent extremism take root in our communities. We know that Canada’s strength comes from our diversity, and we will not be cowed by those who seek to divide us or promote fear.” – Justin Trudeau, quoted by the Toronto Star in “Trudeau calls cop stabbing and van hitting pedestrians in Edmonton a terrorist attack” – Oct. 1st, 2017.

“To the best of our knowledge, this was a lone wolf attack… It is vital now that we not succumb to hatred, that we not be intimidated by violence and that we respond with the loving strength of this whole community … We will not be divided.” – Edmonton Mayor Don Iveson, quoted by Canadian Press in “Suspect will face terrorism charges for ‘lone wolf attack’ on officer and pedestrians” – National Post, Oct. 1st, 2017.
