"I am deeply saddened to hear of the tragedy in Lahore, Pakistan today. The horrific nature of this attack, when families came together as a community, is made even more tragic by so many children being among those worst affected.

Vancouver condemns this ruthless act. We support our local Pakistani community in this difficult time and stand, with most heartfelt condolences, with the victims and their families in Lahore."

Sunday night, City Hall lowered the Canadian flag to half mast and was lit in the colours of the Pakistani flag to honour the victims and their families in the tragic incident in Lahore.
