• PM speech to House of Commons on New Zealand mosque shootings
    Mr. Speaker, Before we begin, our hearts go out to the people of Utrecht and the Netherlands, who are reeling in the aftermath of a tram shooting. It’s in the early stages, but we do know that there are fatalities, and a number of injuries. Police are looking at it as a possible terrorist incident.We stand with our Dutch friends as they grapple with the consequences of this violence, and we will be reaching out to our counterparts to offer our unwavering support.

  • Statement of Apology on Behalf of the Government of Canada to Inuit for the Management of the Tuberculosis Epidemic from the 1940s-1960s
    CHECK AGAINST DELIVERY My friends, to know where we are, and where we’re going, we first have to know where we came from.We have to know our history.We have to face the hard truths that are part of our past.Because for too long, the government’s relationship with Inuit was one of double standards, and of unfair, unequal treatment.While Canada was busy adopting the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, it was treating people throughout Inuit Nunangat as inferior, identifying Inuit with numbers instead of names.

  • Prime Minister's remarks at a Vimy Ridge memorial with veterans
    CHECK AGAINST DELIVERYGood morning everyone.First of all, I want to thank you for being here. It's an honour for me to get to share a few words with you.101 years ago this year, 7,004 Canadians were injured in the battle that began here at Vimy Ridge.3,598 Canadians would never return home. Canada’s population numbered only 8 million at the time.That was 100 years ago, but the realities of war – the tragic loss of those fallen in battle, the magnitude of sacrifice – transcend time.You know that better than anyone.
