On behalf of the 3.3 million members of the Canadian Labour Congress, I extend my deepest condolences to those who were targeted in yesterday’s terrifying attack on a London Mosque.

There is no question that Muslims around the world today feel the chill and vulnerability that results from being the target of violence directed at their faith. That is the definition of terror.

This incident must serve as a potent reminder of our collective obligation to always challenge racism, Islamophobia and prejudice of any kind wherever and whenever we see it. After all, hate is the enemy of humanity.

Our hearts are with you, the community of the Finsbury Park Mosque, the people of London and the entire United Kingdom, as you mourn the loss of the innocent victims to this tragedy.
