Statement from Melissa Lantsman on the recent antisemitic violence in Toronto:
“Absolutely disgusted at the blatantly antisemitic violence that erupted at this weekend’s protest organized by Palestinian activists at Nathan Phillips Square, and across Toronto.
Assault, intimidation, and openly belligerent antisemitism in our streets is an attack on freedom, democracy, and all Canadians. The perpetrators of these heinous acts should be brought to justice.
We should never feel unsafe in Canada. Ever.
Let’s hear the government say it.
I’ve been in touch with our MP Peter Kent, our community organizations, and law enforcement who assure me they’re monitoring the situation, and that there will be increased security presence around our community. Please remain vigilant.”
Secure the future, help elect Erin O’Toole’s Conservatives and get Canada’s economy back on track.
