Statement by Premier Ford on the Anniversary of the Islamic Cultural Centre Shooting

Office of the Premier

Today, Premier Doug Ford issued the following statement on the third anniversary of the shooting at the Islamic Cultural Centre in Quebec City:

"We stand today with the Muslim community across the province and across the country in remembering the tragic and fatal shooting at the Islamic Cultural Centre of Quebec three years ago. The terrorist attack killed six innocent people and injured 19 others.

Islamophobia and hatred have no place in our province. We condemn such acts of hate and violence in the strongest terms and we will continue to defend the right of every person in Ontario to worship and practice their faith, free of fear and violence.

To the families of the victims and to our fellow Muslim-Canadians, please know that we support you as we join you in mourning and honouring the memory of those we lost to this senseless act of terror."
