Ontario Federation of Labour Statement

January 30, 2017

Tonight we are expressing our solidarity and support for the Muslim community. We will not stand by as our Muslim brothers and sisters, friends and comrades are targeted by hateful actions.

The labour movement here in Ontario and across Canada will be with you. We must not allow the likes of Donald Trump, Kellie Leitch and others to divide the working class – for none of us are free until we all live in safety, where our values and cultures are respected and valued.

On this dark night, we vow our commitment to standing alongside the Muslim community and all marginalized groups as we fight together for true justice and equality.

Our hearts go out to the family and friends of those killed or injured in the shooting at the Centre culturel islamique de Qu├ębec in Quebec City.
