Remembering September 11th
On September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks claimed the lives of nearly 3,000 people at the World Trade Center in New York, at the Pentagon in Virginia and in a quiet field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. After ten years, we pause to remember those who lost their lives and mourn with the friends and families who were left behind. While threats of terrorist attacks persist around the globe, the Government of Canada and our allies are better able to prevent and respond to such events. We will continue to build a strong and resilient society that will not be undermined by any form of violent extremism.
