Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Tuesday condemned what he called a “terrorist attack”. And that after the killing of four members of a Muslim family run over on Sunday evening, a truck driven by a young man in the city of London in the province of Ontario.

In detail, a ninth-year-old child from the same family was taken to hospital in a critical condition following the attack on Sunday evening in London, 200 km southwest of Toronto, while the attacker was arrested and charged with four counts of premeditated murder.

“We will continue to fight hate online and elsewhere, and that includes taking further action to dismantle right-wing groups,” Trudeau said in a speech to the House of Commons.

“We all hope that the child recovers quickly from his wounds, even though we know he will live a long time with the grief, incomprehension and anger caused by this cowardly anti-Muslim attack,” the Canadian prime minister added.

Recalling attacks targeting Muslims in Canada since the shooting in a Quebec mosque that left six people dead in 2017, he said, “They were all targeted because of their Muslim belief. This is happening here, in Canada. This must stop.” Especially promising to strengthen the fight against extremist groups.

This tragedy sparked outrage among Muslims in Canada.

The London police confirmed that the suspect, Nathaniel Feltman, 20, ran over a Muslim family with his pickup truck as part of a “deliberate and planned act, motivated by hatred.”

In a statement published on Monday evening, relatives of the victims said the accused attacker was “influenced by a group he was associated with” but they did not name it, or explain how they knew it.
