PM Stephen Harper comments on the terrorist situations in France

Ottawa, Ontario
9 January 2015

Prime Minister Stephen Harper today commented on the additional deaths in France as a result of the terrorist attacks, and commended French authorities for ending the immediate terrorist threat in and around Paris, France.

“The thoughts and prayers of all Canadians are with the family and friends of those who were killed during today’s hostage takings in France. We are also relieved that French authorities were able to neutralize three of those directly involved in these cowardly terrorist acts that killed many innocent people in several locations in France.

“I would like to commend French authorities for tracking down those responsible for these heinous crimes. It is my hope any other individuals responsible for planning and carrying out these depraved acts will be brought to justice and face the full force of the law.

“We stand with our allies in defiance of those who commit such barbaric acts and whose only aim is to usurp the rights of freedom-loving people everywhere, including the fundamental right of freedom of expression.”
