March 14, 2016
OTTAWA – Leader of the Official Opposition and interim Leader of the Conservative Party of Canada the Hon. Rona Ambrose made the following statement today in response to the stabbing of two Canadian Armed Forces members:
“On behalf of the Official Opposition and the Conservative Party of Canada, I extend my sympathies and prayers to the two Canadian Armed Forces members who, according to reports, were wounded in an unprovoked attack at a recruiting office in Toronto today. I wish for a full and fast recovery for both members, and my thoughts are with their families and loved ones.
“I would also like to thank these members for their service to our country, and for the actions they reportedly took to neutralize the unprovoked attack, bringing an end to a situation that threatened the safety and security of others. Their bravery is a reflection of the high standards set by the Canadian Armed Forces in all they do, at home and around the world.
“While we have no confirmation of the reasons for this attack, it is my hope that regardless of the motivation, the perpetrator faces the full force and weight of the criminal justice system for his actions.”
