Two suspects Alexandre Bissonnette and Mohamed Khadir suspects have been arrested in regards to Sunday’s terror attack on a mosque in Quebec City are Alexandre Bissonnette and Mohamed Khadir. The attack left six people dead and eight injured.

Coulliard has called it a “murderous act directed at a specific community.” Trudeau in a statement has said: “We condemn this terrorist attack on Muslims in a centre of worship and refuge. While authorities are still investigating and details continue to be confirmed, it is heart-wrenching to see such senseless violence. Diversity is our strength, and religious tolerance is a value that we, as Canadians, hold dear.” Opposition leaders have also condemned this cowardly attack.
  2. Parliament resumes today and among other things Trump’s Muslim ban will be under discussion.
