Statement by the Honourable Jason Kenney, P.C., M.P., Secretary of State (Multiculturalism and Canadian Identity)
OTTAWA, ONTARIO- Today, following the exchange of five captured terrorists for the remains of Eldad Regev and Ehud Goldwasser, the Government of Canada offers its sympathies to the families of messrs. Regev and Goldwasser and the people of Israel.
The hero’s welcome that terrorist Samir Kantar is receiving stands in stark contrast to the nature of his crime: the brutal murder of Danny Haran, his four-year old daughter Einat and an Israeli policeman.
We offer our condolences to all those affected by terrorism. The Government of Canada considers Hezbollah a terrorist organization and it is listed under Canada’s Criminal Code as such.
