Canadian leaders react to chaos in Washington DC

news-update

Canadian leaders are reacting to the chaos in Washington DC, which saw thousands of Donald Trump supporters storm the Capitol building.
    
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says in a tweet last evening, ``Canadians are deeply disturbed and saddened by the attack on democracy in the United States, our closest ally and neighbour.''
    
He added ``Violence will never succeed in overruling the will of the people.
    
Democracy in the US must be upheld, and it will be.''
    
Kirsten Hillman, Canada's ambassador to the U-S, felt compelled to issue a statement.
    
She tweeted, ``We are following the developments on Capitol Hill very closely, all Embassy staff are safe and accounted for.''
