Statement by MP Brian Masse on his comments in the House of Commons

"I’m deeply sorry about my comment in the House of Commons linking the ceasefire with tackling antisemitism. We must confront antisemitism at all times and without preconditions.

I want to apologize to all who have been impacted by this comment. I’m committed to repairing the harm that was caused.

The rise of antisemitism in Canada is not a new problem but the crisis in the Middle East has made it even worse. As a leader in my community, I have a responsibility to do everything I can to address it."
