The House of Commons has adopted a resolution condemning “any and all acts of terrorism anywhere in the world and especially, at this time, the several recent and outrageous terrorist attacks on Jews in France.”

The resolution, which was introduced by Liberal MP Rolland de Corneilles of Toronto, and which was adopted unanimously, also stated that “this House conveys its deep sympathy to the innocent victims and to their relatives and expresses support for the French government in its determination to protect French Jews.”

The resolution also urged “that all security forces immediately cooperate internationally in an all-out effort to protect Jews from any sufferings and insults at the hands of National Socialists and other extremist groups.”
