Craig speaks on tragic Scarborough shooting

July 17th, 2012 - 9:41pm

I offer my support for the statement released today by my NDP colleagues in Scarborough, MPs Rathika Sitsabaiesan (Scarborough--Rouge River) and Dan Harris (Scarborough Southwest), with respect to the terrible events yesterday in Scarborough. Click here for their statement:

My heartfelt sympathies go out to the victims, their families and the community as a whole. As Dan and Rathika say in their final sentence, gun violence does not belong in our communities.  As we move forward, we must work together, as a community, to end the cycle of violence.

For recent comments  on the NDP's approach to gun and gang violence in Toronto, see the statement released two weeks ago by NDP MPs Olivia Chow and Andrew Cash on behalf of the NDP's Toronto caucus of eight MPs:
