STATEMENT FROM PREMIER BRIAN PALLISTER ON THE MOSQUE SHOOTINGS IN NEW ZEALAND



I am devastated by the news of the despicable and cowardly shootings in New Zealand. Freedom of religion, peace and rule of law are pillars of democracy and the world we share.

On behalf of all Manitobans, we strongly condemn this horrific attack against Muslims. Our prayers are with the victims of this senseless attack and their loved ones.

We have reached out to our Muslim community here in Manitoba to offer our support during this incredibly sad and difficult time. We stand together with you in peace and solidarity.
