Statement By Ontario Premier Dalton Mcguinty
Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty today issued the following statement:
"This morning, Ontario families learned that terrorism-related arrests have been made in Ontario.
While the charges have not yet been proven in court, these allegations are a sober reminder that Ontario and Canada are not immune to terrorist threats. Today's events show that police and government agencies are working together to ensure the safety of the public.
The Ontario government will continue to work alongside other governments and police agencies to guard against any potential violent acts.
Finally, in the wake of these arrests, I would urge all Ontarians not to judge each other by race, ethnicity or religion. Ontario is home to families from every corner of the world, and that helps our economy thrive and gives us a high quality of life.
We must speak with one voice in speaking out against terrorism, just as we deplore racism, hatred and violence."
