MONTREAL, Jan. 8, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - "We learned of the attack perpetrated today in Jerusalem and we condemn it vigorously and without reservation. On my behalf, and that of all Montrealers, I wish to express my sympathies and condolences to the families of the victims and hope those injured make a full recovery. I have very special thoughts for Jerusalem which I recently visited with my colleague and Mayor of Toronto, John Tory, accompanied by an economic delegation last November. I offer all my support and solidarity to the mayor of Jerusalem, Nir Barkat. Any city, such as Jerusalem, Fort Lauderdale, Istanbul, Paris, Nice, Berlin, or Montreal, which seeks to continue to grow and prosper, wishes first and foremost to ensure its citizens an inclusive and safe living environment free of senseless violence," said Denis Coderre, Mayor of Montreal and President of Metropolis, the world association of major metropolises.
