Update: Sunday night, Trudeau tweeted: “Everyone has the right to assemble peacefully and express themselves freely in Canada — but we cannot and will not tolerate antisemitism, Islamophobia, or hate of any kind. We strongly condemn the despicable rhetoric and violence we saw on display in some protests this weekend.” Conservative leader Erin O’Toole, Toronto Mayor John Tory, and Ontario premier Doug Ford have spoken out in condemnation of the violence that occurred a pro-Palestine, anti-Israel event which took place Saturday evening and resulted in an elderly Jewish man being brutally assaulted. “Acts of violence and anti-Semitism on the streets of Toronto and elsewhere in Canada are disturbing and unacceptable,” O’Toole said in a tweet. “I echo the calls for Canadians to stand together against hate. We hope those who engage in these acts face the full extent of the law.” Acts of violence and anti-Semitism on the streets of Toronto and elsewhere in Canada are disturbing and unacceptable.
