Canada’s Unions remember third anniversary of Quebec mosque attack

January 29, 2020

Hassan Yussuff, President of the Canadian Labour Congress issued the following statement:

“Canada’s unions stand with the Muslim community today as we mark three years since the deadly attack on a Quebec City mosque.

Our hearts are with the community of Quebec City’s Islamic Cultural Centre, and across Canada and to the friends and families of the six men killed that day.

As we remember this tragedy, we must also remind ourselves of the obligation we all share to challenge racism, Islamophobia and hatred of any kind whenever and wherever we see it.

The CLC is proud to have put together a report to help our members confront Islamophobia in their workplaces. These are difficult but necessary conversations.

We believe that there is no better way to remember the victims and demonstrate our solidarity than designating January 29th as a National Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia. This is especially important in the face of the rising right-wing populism we see in the world today.

Racism harms us all.”
