London, Ontario Attack Proves 'This Is Our Canada,' Says Jagmeet Singh

Jagmeet Singh is speaking out about the deadly London, Ontario attack in which a family of five was targeted and attacked because they were Muslims.

On Sunday evening, a 20-year-old man struck the family with his truck, killing four people and injuring a 9-year-old.

"Some people say, 'This is not our Canada." The reality is that this IS our Canada, these horrible acts of Islamophobia keep happening. A family going for a walk was killed in a terrorist attack," Singh tweeted on June 8. "Things MUST change."

In the House of Commons on Tuesday, June 8, Singh gave an impassioned speech about the terrorist attack in London, a city he lived in for five years.

"Muslims are not safe in this country. And Muslims wonder... how many more lives will it take? How many more families will be mauled? Mauled down in the street? How many more families will be killed before we do something?" Singh said, visibly emotional.

"Will I be attacked today just because of the way I look? That is a real question people ask."
