Canadian Ethnocultural Communities Extend Condolences

February 3, 2017

Canada and the world as well as the hearts and souls of Canadians and our Canadian ethnocultural communities have been stricken by the tragedy at the Centre Culturel Islamique de Quebec, in Quebec City.

The Canadian Ethnocultural Council(CEC) and its member organizations extend their prayers, thoughts and condolences to the families and friends of the victims and injured in the Quebec City Mosque attack and deadly shooting.

"These are most difficult times wherein not only our democratic values are being challenged but where incidents of hatred and violence shake our very existence. We must continue to be ever more vigilant in preserving our priceless democratic values and constitutional rights. Most importantly we must continue to build bridges of understanding that bring together all communities in mutual respect and thereby combat all forms of hatred and violence and in our diversity nurture a most peaceful harmonious and inclusive society." concluded Dominic Campione, CEC President.

Canadian Ethnocultural Council is a non-profit, non-partisan coalition of national ethnocultural organizations. The CEC works to promote the understanding of the multicultural reality of Canada thereby ensuring equal opportunity and dignity for all Canadians regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, and ancestry, as defined in The Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Canadian Multiculturalism Act.
