(February 2017, Ottawa)—On behalf of the Public Service Alliance of Canada—National Capital Region, the Racially Visible Action Committee (RVAC), condemns this week’s vicious attack on the Islamic Cultural Centre in Quebec City by Alexandre Bissonnette, a young and apparently right-wing extremist student studying at Laval University. The attack, which killed six people and injured 19 others, is a reminder that racism and, specifically, Islamophobia, are very much alive in Canada today.
