Cabinet in scripted remarks at Rideau Hall expressed unequivocal support for Israeli victims of terrorist attacks. Governor General Mary Simon avoided all mention of Hamas, Gaza or Palestinians.

“I would like to say a few words about the events continuing to unfold in Israel and the region,” said Simon at a ceremony Friday accrediting a new Israeli Ambassador to Canada. “The gruesome terrorist attacks committed by Hamas on Israel shocked the world in their brutality.”

“We are horrified by what we have witnessed,” said Simon. “Canada continues to monitor the latest developments and is greatly concerned for the mounting losses of innocent lives, as well as for those who have been kidnapped.”
