“We are outraged by the terrorist attacks in Paris which President Hollande correctly described as an act of war against France, a Canadian ally. ISIS and the ideology that drives it are a scourge that must be vanquished. These cruel, cynical acts of violence are an affront to the democratic principles we cherish: liberty, pluralism, and security.
“While we are angry, we are also deeply saddened by the tragic loss of innocent life. The victims, their families, and all the people of France are in our thoughts and prayers.
“We are very grateful to law enforcement and to members of the emergency services who risk their safety to protect ours.
“While the people of France bore the horrific brunt of these murderous attacks, we were all the targets, and we remain united in our fight against Islamist terrorism.”
