Statement on attacks against Israel

As a proud representative of Toronto, often touted as the world’s most diverse city, I am deeply horrified by the events unfolding in Israel over the past week. The violence and devastation may be abroad, but it significantly impacts us here, as Toronto is home to so many people from the region.

Our strength lies in our diversity and mutual respect for each other’s unique cultures and histories; and as such, we share in the heartbreak of our fellow Torontonians who are personally affected.

Everybody has a right to feel safe and secure within their community, a sentiment that I strive to maintain here in Toronto.

Together, we can get through these trying times and come out stronger.
