TESL Ontario Statement: London Tragedy

TESL Ontario is shocked and saddened by the tragic deaths of a Muslim family in London, ON., following a hate-motivated attack this week. We are pained that so many people within our own communities feel unsafe or unwelcome as they live their daily lives.

While we mourn this tremendous loss and abhorrent act of hate, we hold in our thoughts the nine-year old survivor. We stand in solidarity and support with our Muslim friends, members, colleagues and loved ones, and remain committed to providing a community free from discrimination of any kind.

Islamophobia has no place in our society and TESL Ontario is committed to ensuring it is never allowed to take root in our diverse educational community.
