Tonight, my dear, peaceful Québec hurts…
A few hours ago, some man entered a Mosque in Québec City and opened fire on the 100 or about people that were there for a prayer session.
We’re almost used to terrorist attacks now, let’s face it. But sadly, in most situations, they are attacks of minorities against the country that welcomed them.
Not the case here, and it sickens me.
I know it is a minority speaking up for the minority. But it sickens me to see an attack against Muslims in my Province.
Details are few… But the picture is dark. And I am sorry tonight. Sorry that the image of Québec will be stained by the acts of a horrible person.
For years now… For decades… Québec has been a welcoming haven for people of different nationalities, races, sexual orientations…
I am disappointed, to say the least. We are never safe from evil, but I never thought some of “us” would join the worldly hate movement.
I am sorry, world… “We” don’t hate gays, lesbians, Muslims, Jews, blacks or asians.
I am sorry… Blood never should have been shed.
