Dear Members of the Edmonton Council of Muslim Communities (ECMC),
 
On behalf of the Edmonton & District Council of Churches (EDCC), I wish to express our condolences to the Muslim community of Edmonton in response to the tragic shooting in the Quebec City mosque.
 
We are appalled at the discrimination and hatred that prompted such a horrific act toward a tradition that emphasizes peace, love, and hospitality.  We continue to uphold you in our thoughts and prayers as we stand in the respect and solidarity of all our neighbours in other faith traditions.  Know that in your grieving, we share your grief.
 
 
Uniting our prayers to your own,
 
 
The Reverend Kevin Kraglund
President, Edmonton & District Council of Churches (EDCC)
