    “I was devastated when I heard about the innocent victims who were killed or injured at the Ariana Grande concert tonight in Manchester – many of them far too young.

    “Canada and the United Kingdom are the closest of friends, and we stand together as a people in this most tragic of circumstances.

    “With our allies and partners, we will continue to counter such senseless acts and to fight terrorism in its many forms. We will do all that we can to assist British authorities in bringing those responsible to justice.

    “Our hearts are with the people of the United Kingdom tonight, and we mourn with them the loss of so many innocent victims.”

    ***IMPORTANT***
