Mr. Speaker, over a month ago, when this House was not sitting, a madman walked into the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin and opened fire on innocent Sikh men, women and children killing six people and seriously wounding a police officer.
The Government of Canada issued a statement of condolence when this tragedy occurred. On the day of the shooting, the Minister of Foreign Affairs noted:
Canada condemns this senseless act of violence.
On behalf of all Canadians, I offer [our sincere] condolences to the family and friends of [those killed] and wish [a full] recovery [to the injured].
I and my constituents join the Minister of Foreign Affairs in condemning these murders. We pray for the congregation in Wisconsin and for all those who are victims of violence because of their faith.
May such attacks never happen anywhere again.
