Trudeau said that we condemn this terrorist attack on Muslims in a centre of worship and refuge. Muslim-Canadians are an important part of our national fabric, and these senseless acts have no place in our communities, city and country.

As per the witnesses cited by Radio-Canada, two men entered the centre and opened fire on the people inside the mosque.

In a series of Twitter, the Prime Minister of Quebec – Philippe Couillard said that the government was mobilised to ensure the security of the people of Quebec. Quebec categorically rejects this barbaric violence. Solidarity with Quebec people of Muslim faith.
