Winnipeg Muslim-Jewish Interfaith Dialogue Group - Statement on Quebec shooting

The four co-founders of the Winnipeg Muslim-Jewish Interfaith Dialogue Group - Dr. Rory Dickson, Sumera Sahar, Belle Jarniewski, and Perry Kimelman - join together in expressing our outrage and grief in response to the unconscionable attack on the mosque in Quebec city that resulted in the death of six individuals and injured many others, some critically. There is no possible way to convey the extent of our grief or the inability to understand how a human being could commit such a heinous act. Our response can only be to redouble our efforts to stand in solidarity with each other, to oppose all manifestations of racism and attempts to marginalize any minorities, to support one another and to offer our deepest condolences to the victims and their families.
