OCASI statement on the attack on a Muslim family in London, Ontario

Toronto / June 8, 2021

OCASI is shocked and outraged by the mass murder of a Muslim family in London, Ontario on Sunday June 6, 2021. It was a deliberate act of hate, Islamophobia and terrorism.

The Council is deeply grieved and saddened by the tragic loss of four lives of a family who were deliberately targeted because of their Muslim faith. We offer our deepest condolences to their young son who has lost his entire family to this violent attack, and to the families and communities affected.
