Kaleed Rasheed Today, I rose in the Legislature to address the horrific attack on a family in Mississauga. Find my full statement below:
As the MPP for the great riding of Mississauga-East Coosksville, it is my honour to stand for the 1st time in the Ontario Legislature as the 1st Muslim Canadian elected as an MPP for the PC Party of Ontario.
Mr. Speaker I was prepared to discuss the activities and great achievements that my constituents are working towards today. However, I must speak about a horrific and tragic event that occurred in a Mississauga community centre parking lot on Sunday, July 15 where a husband was viciously beaten and his wife, Diana, was also assaulted in front of their two young children ages four and six. A friend, Fuat Yucel, who tried to intervene was also attacked.
Yesterday, I visited the family at St. Michael’s hospital where Mr. Muhammed Abu Marzouk just regained consciousness, and bravely fights for recovery. With great courage, his wife and children remain strong, speaking out in the face of such needless violence. We pray for their well-being.
Thanks to the work of the police and witnesses, the 2 alleged attackers were apprehended and this horrific incident is now being investigated as a hate crime. If there is any hope from this senseless act, it is that the residents of Mississauga are united in their stand against such horrific and inhumane actions and have shown an outpouring of support for the victims.
I would like to thank Peel Police Chief Jennifer Evans whose officers selflessly put themselves in harm’s way for their community every day and the other first responders for addressing this incident urgently and professionally.
Mr. Speaker I believe I speak on behalf of all Parliamentarians when I say that hate will not be accepted in this society and that we must continue to work collectively in order to eradicate HATE and intolerance in all its forms within our beautiful Province and Country. Thank you.
