Statement on Barbaric Manchester Terrorist Attack

May 23, 2017

OTTAWA – Conservative Public Safety Critic and Member of Parliament for Parry Sound-Muskoka, Tony Clement, issued the following statement on last night’s horrific terror attack at a concert in Manchester, U.K.:

“Our hearts go out to the families of the victims of this barbaric attack. The depravity and cowardice of targeting a venue predominantly full of young girls innocently enjoying a concert is shocking.”

“As a father, and as someone who was born in Manchester, I want to express in the strongest possible terms that those responsible must be held accountable. British law enforcement have done fine work in already making an arrest.”

“Attacks like these are a stark reminder of our need to vigilant against the terrorist threat, and the need to continue the fight to degrade and destroy jihadi terrorists wherever they may be.”
