Canada stands with Paris

Brian LilleyArchive

Canadian political leaders reacted with horror to the terrorist attacks in Paris. The news of the attacks broke late Friday in the nation’s capital with all three main party leaders denouncing the cowardly acts.


“I am shocked and saddened that so many people have been killed and injured today in a number of terrorist attacks in Paris, France, and that many others are being held hostage,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a statement.

Trudeau also took time to make brief remarks before the cameras as he and his entourage were boarding a plane to travel to the G-20 conference in Antalya, Turkey. He reiterated that Canada stands poised to help France and said he had spoken to his national security team to ensure all steps were taken to protect the safety of Canadians.

Rona Ambrose, the interim leader of the Conservatives, called for swift action to bring those responsible to justice.

“My thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of those who lost their lives and those injured in the terrorist attacks today in Paris, and we pray for the safe release of the hostages currently being held,” Ambrose said.

"Let there be no mistake, Canada and Canadians stand with France on this tragic day.”

There was no break among the leaders in calling what happened in France a terrorist attack. New Democratic Party Leader Tom Mulcair, whose wife is a French immigrant, denounced what had happened.

“Canadians are shocked and horrified by the terrorist attacks in Paris today. We stand with the world in grieving this terrible loss of life and in condemning cowardly violence,” Mulcair said.

“On behalf of all New Democrats, I extend my profound condolences to the families of those killed, and to the people of France.”

Canadians travelling to France were warned of possible impediments.

“The situation is evolving. A state of emergency was declared. Borders are closed and there could be delays in flights to and from Paris,” and advisory on the Global Affairs website read.

Canadians in Paris in distress or those with family in the area worried for their safety are encouraged to contact government hotlines. The Embassy of Canada in Paris can be reached by phone at +33 (0)1 44 43 29 02 or you can contact the Emergency Watch and Response Centre in Ottawa at 613-996-8885 or send an email to

As we already found out there were ISIS terrorists got across the border by infiltrating the refugee group. And we are taking refugees, why? Also, to process an average of 5000 a week there is no possible way that they can be safely screened.

Disregard – they seem to have put it back up – go figure

Please go to the Star and see if it is there – I reposed it – like it if you can

I posted this on the Star:

They removed it

This is a truthful response to the article and I will be curious to see if it stays – the last one was removed.

If Sajjan is a true military man – to quote cbc and ctv – a badass – a hero – and all the things the media made up about him – he knows the dangers and would be doing his best to stop this insanity of importing the Syrians.

And if he fails as an officer who took the oath with NO EXPIRATION DATE – he should go public. THAT would make me respect him.

I think/know he is reveling in his new found power and will do nothing of the sort – proving to me he was not much of a military officer and he is not much of a Canadian. He KNOWS!

He will do nothing. That def min position is TOO nice!

He IS ex military – and if he was an officer of ANY capability – he KNOWS!

Not going to do a thing.

Which in the end will indeed prove my point. If he does – I will publicly take this all back.



You just watch and see.

Justin Crudeau, you must have read about that Brit Politician, who just before WW2, after his visit with Hitler. Waving a piece of paper in the air and yelling “No war with Germany”
He too, was a Liberal.

You would think that the numbskull Justin Trudeau would recognize, “I have seen the future”, and accordingly, change his mad course to bring in 25,000 un-vetted Syrian ‘refugees’ by Christmas. Through the Internet, interestingly, I found out that this phrase comes from a New York reporter, Lincoln Steffens (1866-1936), who after his return on a three-week visit to the Soviet Union, made his famous remark about the new Soviet society: “I have seen the future, and it works”, a phrase he often repeated with many variations. Unlike the “useful idiots” like SEAN PENSON and MICHAEL MANN (Remember: “birds of a feather flock together”), who, like Steffens was, are thrilled in anticipation of such a future, I have seen the future, and it sucks !

My heart goes out to all the victims of this horrible terrorist attack. That being said because of the assinine policies of the leftist idealogues in Europe such attacks were not only predictable but inevitable. The leftist elite never feel the impact of their actions, that is reserved for the great unwashed. On a positive note I would imagine trudeau has already dispatched a plane load of parkas and winter clothing to Paris to help in the fight

Trudeau boy is a pathetic loser, parroting his loser idol Obama. Meaningless words, hollow empty sentiment. Both traitors.
Its all going to be in our backyards pretty soon, this will be our new reality. And these two neutered puppets will do nothing to keep us safe. Swing open the gates boys.

PM (Jagger ) Trudeau and Pres. Obama are doing a remake rock video that the Prime ministers old man Mick did with David Bowie back in the 80’s, “dancing in the streets”… We know that the jihads are doing that today.

Sean Penson said, “Our young and talented first couple will make us proud with how they will look at the G20 summit in Turkey, and the environmental peace talks in Paris”

Yes, because looking good is the best thing for a PM and his wife to do. Young? Yes. Talented? Well Sophie might be, but Justin sure is not.

Trudope is putting our national security at risk because he’s a PC dope.
commented 2015-11-14 10:21:38 -0500
According to some of the individuals that I spoke to on Veteran’s for the Conservative Party facebook , we do not have the intel to properly vet the 25,000 that Justy is planning on bringing in, so if this is the case then why is our new P.M. putting our national security at risk?

The fox is in the chicken coup and killing the chickens. France closes its borders and directs aircraft carrier to middle east. Canada opens its’ borders and withdraws fighter aircraft. The Prince of Primp is off to meetings of world leaders to offer Canadian troops as peace keepers. Idiocy and irrelevance on parade for the world to see.

Sean, did you really refer to this as a tragic mishap? You are a troll of the worst kind.
commented 2015-11-14 09:09:40 -0500
empty words from a liberal, Nobody is really shocked this is a sign of more to come in europe, they let them in now they have to throw them out, all of them. JT is nothing but an empty suit , words mean nothing actions mean everything,

Sean Penson commented
“We don’t know who or what is behind the heinous crimes.”

“Paris attacks: Islamic State claims responsibility and blames France – live
- Eight attackers also died, police say, seven of them by detonating explosive suicide belts”

“The Islamic State has officially claimed responsibility for the attacks. This statement was released by ISIS in French. …. Before the official announcement, ISIS affiliated accounts on Twitter reportedly claimed the attacks for the Islamic State. They used the hashtag “Paris on Fire” in Arabic to celebrate the attacks, the same hashtag ISIS used to celebrate the Charlie Hebdo terror attack. …. The alleged tweet by ISIS also threatened that there would be attacks in London and Rome on November 14 or 15. This was noticed by @ vestrapvp."

“ISIS claimed responsibility for Friday’s series of attacks in Paris in an online statement distributed by supporters. The statement says that eight ISIS militants wearing explosive belts and armed with machine guns attacked precisely selected targets in the French capital. The attacks, which left at least 128 people dead, is one of the deadliest massacres in France in recent years.”

Sean Person, who has all the PC brain-dead qualifications to work for the CBC or any of the left wing media, says we don’t know what was behind these heinous crimes and they were unpredictable. Speak for yourself Sean. Islam is behind these attacks. This has been going on for 1400 years and the use of terror to spread this “religion” is mandated in the Koran and was rage way of the prophet. As for predictability, people like me have been predicting this for years. It will happen here as well. It will happen wherever the followers of this insane death cult gather in sufficient numbers. Sean, your political correctness will be the death of us.

Diversity – got to love it.

Remember Eurabia media is actually NOT ALLOWED to report many issues as it is considered to be racist and can result in jail terms for reporters and editors – so look to see this news pretty much stifled and stopped within a few days. That is why alternative media is starting to grow wings.

So – think about that when you look around all Canadian media.

Are there any outlets that are actually QUESTIONING our forced diversity by bringing in the trash from the mid east?

I have not seen one main stream media stand up and say we need to be careful – it is all suppressed in Canada as well.

Going to be more violence in Eurabia – much more and possibly sooner than many realize – especially the entitled Canadian.

Justy will protect us

As a lawyer with a deep understanding of Islam the phrase “bring to justice”as applied to this situation annoys me to no end.bThese savages are not shoplifters. They are terrorists engaged in war. They need to be eliminated. This savagery would not have occurred without political correctness. A politician who says he stands with France while withdrawing from even the limited war with ISIS is lying.
commented 2015-11-14 06:16:34 -0500
At least Justin was calm and rational when he spoke to the media on the night of the tragic mishap. Once he and his wife visit the fashion capital, all calm will be restored. Our young and talented first couple will make us proud with how they will look at the G20 summit in Turkey, and the environmental peace talks in Paris

Standing involves no motion…no motion in any direction. However, board your plane and burn umpty tons of kerosene to implement a carbon tax for the ‘middle class’. Smile, it’s REAL CHANGE! Eat it and SMILE.

Sean is here with his usual fantasies. Sorry Sean we know exactly who this is and Islam is not a race. Sorry but if i ever knew you were the victim of a terror attack i would have no sympathy.
commented 2015-11-14 01:45:17 -0500
Maybe the hero of the left,Justin, could go offer more humanitarian aid and free immigration to more of these types of terrorists. It’s gonna get A LOT worse before it gets better. Any time the left is in power, the war cycles rise. Not because they are war mongurers but because they are easy targets.
commented 2015-11-14 01:15:55 -0500
That DAMN FOOL Trudeau is putting all Canadians at risk with his idiot plan to flood Canada with these followers of Islam! He is abandoning the Christians in the middle east, to be slaughtered like animals at the hands of these followers of Islam, and is welcoming the killers in to Canada with open arms. He will be directly responsible for any and all deaths that happen. I wish there was some way we could have him arrested for treason, for endangering Canadians in such a fashion!

Hey Justy- “our thoughts and prayers” aren’t going to cut it. Welcome to reality princess. I am disgusted by Assad, and more importantly Putin’s support for him, but importing a bunch of refugees on a whim to satisfy your political promises isn’t going to resolve anything. The French populace said the same thing a lot of Canadians are saying right now-“that will never happen here”, then the whole Charlie Hebdo terror attacks, and now this. Its easy to dismiss when it happens on the other side of the ocean, seems like another world, but Canada has already been victim to this warped ideology. So Justy, you better be careful who you welcome into our country, because now, more than ever, we will hold you accountable for your election promises. Don’t forget junior, you might have a majority government, but that doesn’t mean the majority of Canadians voted for you. And where did that Mcallum dufus come from- good God, is that the best you could come up with?

Correction: Decent Canadians stand with Paris and against Muslims, but not the Canadian #RetardPM.
