Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee
Statement by Hon. Stéphane Dion, Leader of the Opposition, on the Attack in Jerusalem

On behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada and our Parliamentary caucus, I would like to express my sadness and concern over today’s attack on a yeshiva in Jerusalem.

The Liberal Opposition joins the international community in condemning such deplorable acts of violence.

I know all Canadians join me in extending our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of those who lost their lives in the shooting, the students and staff at the Mercaz Harav yeshiva, and all those who were
touched by this senseless tragedy.
