Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Advocates Against Hatred And Racism In Aftermath Of The Terrorist Attacks On Paris

Manila, Philippines

18 November 2015

The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, issued the following statement today advocating against acts of hatred and racism directed at specific Canadians in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks in Paris:

“Following the terrorist attacks in Paris, I have noted with deep regret a number of highly disturbing acts aimed at certain Canadians, including the fire at the mosque in Peterborough, the smashing of windows at a Hindu temple in Kitchener, and the attack on a Muslim woman in Toronto.

“Diversity is Canada’s strength. These vicious and senseless acts of intolerance have no place in our country and run absolutely contrary to Canadian values of pluralism and acceptance.

“The Government of Canada strongly condemns such actions and, along with law enforcement agencies, will protect the rights of innocent Canadians being subjected to such abuse.

“Canadians understand that religious groups around the world suffer persecution regularly at the hands of violent extremists. Our focus must be on stopping the people responsible for the terror, and continuing to fight hate by embracing Canadian values.”

ISIS terrorists were ‘high on drugs’ carrying out Paris attacks

London, Nov. 18 (ANI): The drug history of Paris terror suspects is fuelling speculation that the ISIS jihadis were ‘high on drugs’ as they carried out the deadly attacks.

Ibrahim Abdeslam, who blew himself up at a French cafe on Friday, owned a bar in Belgium that shut down two weeks ago after it became a house of drug addicts.

Police officers recovered found syringes, a short set of needles and plastic tubes from the Paris hotel room that the 26-year-old had booked for the terrorists, the Daily Star reported.

Police are trying to figure out if it was drug paraphernalia or bomb-building gear linked to the killers’ explosive-packed belts.

Currently, a siege involving the police and uncertain number of terrorists is underway in the northern Paris suburb of Saint Denis where the mastermind of Paris attacks is believed to have been holed up. (ANI)
