Bomb threat against Jewish centre unacceptable says Horgan

VICTORIA —  John Horgan, Leader of the B.C. New Democrats released the following statement on the bomb threat targeted at the Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver:

“I was shocked and dismayed to learn that the Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver was forced to evacuate last night after a bomb threat.

“We cannot allow our friends and neighbours to be threatened by people with hatred in their hearts. We must denounce anti-Semitism and other forms of racial violence in our communities. It has no place here.

“We cannot allow anyone to divide our province with threats of violence.

“I hope that British Columbians of all backgrounds will rally together to condemn these hateful acts, and to protect those who are targeted by racism, discrimination and violence.”
