Statement on the Pittsburgh Synagogue Shooting

Saturday’s shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue, which killed eleven people and injured six others, left me saddened and horrified.

Hundreds of our members are of the Jewish faith. Our union stands in solidarity with them and all those who feel affected by this act of pure evil.

On behalf of Canada’s Teamsters, I would like to convey our sincerest condolences to the victims’ families and loved ones. I would also like to thank first responders and wish a speedy recovery to those injured.

Fraternally,

François Laporte
President
