Mr. Peter Julian (New Westminsterâ€”Burnaby, NDP): Mr. Speaker, sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, antisemitism, Islamophobia, we are seeing a tragic outbreak of hatred in this country and in the United States. We must speak out and denounce hatred in all of its forms, whether it comes as an anonymous tract left outside a church door, as happened recently in my riding, or whether it comes as a statement or action from the new president of the United States, all of us have the responsibility to speak out against hatred.
Nous avons vu, il y a neuf jours, jusqu'oÃ¹ la haine peut mener, aprÃ¨s le meurtre crapuleux dans une mosquÃ©e Ã QuÃ©bec. Cela ne doit pas se rÃ©pÃ©ter et c'est pour Ã§a qu'il faut parler.
People are speaking out and speaking up. Canadians and Americans are marching, talking, reacting on social media because we all understand that hatred is wrong, that love should govern all of what we do in our lives.
Jack Layton's final words were clear: â€œMy friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And weâ€™ll change the worldâ€�.
