Statement by Liberal Leader Bob Rae on the Violence Following the Quebec Election

Posted on September 5, 2012

MONTEBELLO (QC)– Liberal Leader Bob Rae made the following statement today on the violence at the Parti Québécois election rally:

“I was deeply shocked and disturbed to learn about the shootings that took place during Quebec Premier-elect Pauline Marois’ victory speech.

We are extremely saddened by these senseless acts of violence, and congratulate the police and security forces for doing their work in the most difficult of circumstances. There is never an excuse or justification for acts of violence in Canadian society.

On behalf of the Liberal Party of Canada and our Parliamentary caucus, I extend my thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families.”
