ACQS - American Council for Québec Studies














Statement in Response to Terrorist Attack on the Islamic Cultural Center of Québec City




Au nom des membres de l'ACQS, le Comité exécutif tient à exprimer non seulement notre profonde tristesse pour l'attentat à la mosquée de Ste-Foy dimanche dernier, mais aussi et surtout notre solidarité avec nos compatriotes et collègues québécois et canadiens. Le Québec et le Canada nous sont chers à cause de l'ouverture d'esprit et la tradition d'accueil aux étrangers qui définissent l'esprit national. Dans ce moment difficile, nous sommes encouragés par les messages des premiers ministres Couillard et Trudeau qui ont souligné encore l'importance de la diversité et de la tolérance religieuse. Nous, aussi, nous pleurons la perte des victimes à Ste-Foy et proclamons notre solidarité avec nos amis québécois et canadiens.

The Executive Board of the ACQS expresses on behalf of our membership our grief over the recent terrorist attack at a Mosque in Ste-Foy, Québec, and our support for our compatriots and colleagues across Québec and Canada. We hold Québec and Canada dear for the open-mindedness and the welcoming spirit we know so well, and we are encouraged that, in these difficult times, Prime Ministers Couillard and Trudeau have affirmed faith in the core national values of diversity and religious tolerance. We, too, mourn the loss of life in Ste-Foy and stand with our Québécois and Canadian friends.
