Statement from Barry Petten on Mosque Vandalism
"We are better than this - we have to be. Racism, Islamophobia, or any other prejudice, cannot be tolerated in our society."
Tuesday, February 2, 2021

(February 2, 2021) – "I am appalled to hear of the vandalism of a Mosque under construction in Conception Bay South. It's shocking and unacceptable.

The people of Newfoundland and Labrador pride ourselves in being welcoming, inclusive, and taking care of our neighbours.

We are better than this - we have to be. Racism, Islamophobia, or any other prejudice, cannot be tolerated in our society.

I hope construction of the Mosque can resume quickly and that people can worship freely without fear of incidents like this." – Barry Petten, PC Candidate for Conception Bay South
