Ottawa, May 28, 2015 – The Honourable Jason Kenney, Minister of Multiculturalism, issued the following statement condemning the acts of vandalism against St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church in Mississauga:

“Earlier this week, a repugnant and deplorable act of vandalism was committed against St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church in Mississauga. This parish and its neighbouring elementary school have been targeted multiple times in the past month in a particularly disturbing manner aimed at the Jewish roots of Christianity. The attacks have defaced the church and a statue of Jesus with anti-Semitic messages offensive to Christians and Jews.

Our Government condemns these heinous anti-Christian and anti-Semitic hate crimes. They are offensive to Canadians, and have no place in Canada.

I am pleased that police have laid charges against a suspected culprit.

As Minister for Multiculturalism, I would like to express my pride in the Canadians of the Jewish, Muslim and other communities who have denounced the attacks and expressed their solidarity with the local community.”
