Open Letter from HPCAS – Statement of Support

Open Letter from HPCAS – Statement of Support

June 9, 2021

To the Members of Huron and Perth Counties,

The recent incident in London, Ontario where a hate-motivated car attack  resulted in the murdering of 4 members of an Islamic family and injured another have again highlighted the need for us to address racism in our society.  Hate should have no place in our society and this act of violence is shocking and unacceptable.

The Huron-Perth Children’s Aid Society wishes to express our deepest sympathies to family and friends directly impacted by this tragic loss.  Further, we recognize the need to support all those impacted by this horrible act and we extend our support to our staff, our resources homes, our volunteers and to our community.

The Huron-Perth Children’s Aid Society respects and supports our Muslim community, whose grief we share in this senseless tragedy. We are committed to combating racism, Islamophobia, and discrimination in all its forms. We are committed to work for a community, a province, and a country where all forms of racism are no longer part of our lives.  We are also committed to creating an inclusive community.

We ask everyone to join us in our commitment to work for a community where the principles of Equity, Reconciliation and Inclusion are apparent in our society.

Sincerely,

Shaun Jolliffe

Executive Director
