Sherwood Park MP calls on prime minister to condemn violence against pro-life demonstrators
Conservative MP Garnett Genuis has called on the Prime Minister to condemn political violence after news of several incidences of assault against prolife demonstrators.
“It is deeply disturbing to see acts of politically motivate violence taking place in Canada,” the Sherwood Park-Fort Saskatchewan MP wrote in a petition he launched after reports of violence in Toronto.
“Politically motivated violence has no place in this country or anywhere. Without a strong response from the appropriate authorities, violence of this sort can have a chilling effect on public discourse.”
One instance involved an attack on Campaign Life Coalition’s youth coordinator Marie-Claire Bissonnette on Sept. 30
