Candian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau expressed his shock and disappointment over the recent attack on Capitol Hill by the rioters “incited” by Donald Trump. In a press briefing, he said that
“What we witnessed was an assault on democracy by violent rioters, incited by the current president and other politicians. As shocking, deeply disturbing, and frankly saddening as that event remains, we have also seen this week that democracy is resilient in America, our closest ally and neighbor. Violence has no place in our societies, and extremists will not succeed in overruling the will of the people.”
“We will stop the steal. We know that even as we watch with extreme concern everything unfolding in the United States over these past few days … we are not immune to that in Canada. We have a responsibility as Canadians to continue to lead with respect, to engage substantially with different points of view, and to never resort to violence as a way of impacting public discourse. That is something that Canadians have recommitted to across the country over these past days and we will continue to be extremely vigilant to remember that the choices we make as leaders, like politicians, have consequences.”
“We strongly denounce organizations, such as the Proud Boys, who advance misogynistic, white supremacist beliefs, and glorify violence. Intolerance and hate have no place in our society,” she said in a media statement.
“Our greatest responsibility is keeping Canadians safe. To fulfil that responsibility, our government and agencies must keep pace with evolving threats and global trends, such as white supremacy.”
“The listing demonstrates that our security agencies are alert to evolving threats and will not hesitate to take necessary action. The listing process is always ongoing and when an organization has been found to meet the Criminal Code threshold, they will be added.”

Looking forward to being back at work and feeling better soon.”
