Statement by the Prime Minister of Canada on the terrorist attack in London

OTTAWA, June 4, 2017  /CNW/ - The Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, today issued the following statement after last night's terrorist attack in the United Kingdom:

"Canada strongly condemns the senseless attack that took place last night in London, United Kingdom, which killed and injured many innocent people. I am heartbroken that a Canadian is among those killed.

"We grieve with the families and friends of those who have lost loved ones, and wish all those injured a speedy and full recovery.

"Londoners and people across the United Kingdom have always displayed strength and resilience in the face of adversity. We recently witnessed this after the attacks in Manchester and in the Westminster area of London. This time will be no different.

"These hateful acts do not deter us; they only strengthen our resolve. Canadians stand united with the British people. We will continue to work together with the United Kingdom and all our allies to fight terrorism and bring perpetrators to justice.

"The Government of Canada will not comment further at this time out of respect for the family."
