ParlAmericas Condemns the Attack against the Parliament of Canada
The member countries of ParlAmericas deplore the attack committed on the morning of October 21, 2014 in the vicinity of the Canadian parliament in Ottawa – where the Prime Minister of Canada Stephen Harper, members of parliament, other authority figures, and visitors were present at the time – and which left a soldier dead.
We express our solidarity with the Parliament, the authorities, and the people of Canada in the face of such a deplorable act.
We send our condolences for the death of Corporal Nathan Cirillo who was guarding the National War Memorial.
We strongly condemn all acts of violence, and we vow for this to not be repeated in any part of our continent.
Canadian Member of Parliament Randy Hoback, former President of ParlAmericas, expressed gratitude for the messages and well wishes received. He recognized that because of the actions of the Canadian security services, he and his staff were back to work again safe and unharmed.
