Declaration of the Metropolis President about today's terrorist attack in Barcelona

Metropolis Secretariat General

We were shocked and outraged to learn of today’s terrorist attack in Barcelona. The Metropolis Association expresses its deepest sadness and heartfelt sympathy to the families and friends of the victims. We also offer our full support to the Mayor of Barcelona, Ms. Ada Colau. Our association’s secretariat is located in the heart of the city, and so this senseless act of terror affects us directly, and is especially upsetting to us. The Metropolis member cities condemn these acts of violence, stand united against all forms of radicalization leading to violence, and emphasize our shared values of fraternity, tolerance and solidarity.

Honourable Denis Coderre 
President of Metropolis 
Mayor of Montréal
