Statement from the Leader of the Official Opposition, the Hon. Rona Ambrose, on the Terror Attacks in Egypt

OTTAWA –April 10 2017 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Rona Ambrose, Interim Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada and Leader of the Official Opposition, issued the following statement on the Egyptian Terror Attacks:

“Canada’s Conservative caucus condemns in the strongest terms these heinous acts of terror. The attacks targeted vulnerable religious minorities on one of the most important days on the Christian calendar.

“These murderous acts, for which ISIS Claimed responsibility, targeted Christian churches and adherents as they gathered for Palm Sunday, killed and wounded dozens of innocent civilians in the northern Egyptian cities of Tanta and Alexandria.

“Our thoughts and prayers will continue to be with the families and loved ones of those who perished in these tragic attacks, and we wish a full recovery to the many wounded.

“We stand in solidarity and partnership with the people of Egypt, and those effected, as they recover from yet another violent act of terror.

“On this Palm Sunday, we are reminded of the triumphant resilience and unity throughout Christian history, and we know the character of both the Christian faith and Egyptian people will endure long after this targeted and terrible loss of life.”
