Prime Minister Stephen Harper has recently mentioned during the Commons question period that the unconfirmed reports of a possible terror attack on two Canadian soldiers in Quebec are “extremely troubling.” The premier was inquired about the situation by Prince Albert MP, Randy Hoback, about the incident that took place in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que., i.e. about 40 kilometres southeast of Montreal, on Monday.
Mr. Hoback questioned the Premier that “there are unconfirmed reports of a possible terror attack against two members of the Canadian armed forces near Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu,” seeking details over the incident. Premier Harper replied saying that “we are aware of these reports and they are obviously extremely troubling. First and foremost, our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. We’re closely monitoring the situation and obviously we will make available all of the resources of the federal government.”
