To whom it may concern,

I would like to express my deepest condolences for the tragic loss suffered within your community during the attack on the Quebec Mosque last evening. This is a time in which we all should seek unity and friendship with a devastating concurrence (like the attack on the Quebec Mosque), such bonds are strained to the point of breakage. Canada is a true beacon of hope and refuge to all, not a land of persecution and tyranny. Given this, we must all share the pain sprouted form this terrible event, and peacefully collaborate to ensure this well being of everyone within our beloved country.
