Mr. Speaker, I wish to condemn the acts of terror yesterday that occurred in Mumbai.
Reports of over 100 dead and hundreds more wounded have shocked people around the world. Many Canadians, particularly those of Indian descent, are deeply troubled by the Mumbai attacks yesterday and earlier today.
The bombings this week and in recent months are not the answer and democracies must stand together in opposition to such heinous and cowardly attacks.
I hope peace and order are soon restored in Mumbai. Many of us have travelled to Mumbai and India and see its great potential as an emerging partner for Canada in an ever more interconnected world.
Our thoughts today are with the people of India at this troubling time.
