The artistic community in shock

The artistic community, that of Quebec City, was not long to react to the attacks that shook the city on Sunday. Some of them, such as Safia Nolin and Karim Ouellet, said that Muslims were part of their relatives or had played an important role in their lives, while others, including musicians from outside the province such as the Billy group Talent or singer Patrick Bruel, shared their fear in front of this killing or sent their love.

The singer Karim Ouellet reported in Twitter that his cousin’s husband is Muslim and that with his two children he had to go to the evening prayer at the mosque of Sainte-Foy on Sunday. “The children were tired, so they stayed at home. I am relieved, but also sad, shocked, helpless. ”

Safia Nolin, whose father is Algerian, also reacted in Twitter, first by sending “a lot of love for the Muslim community of Quebec”. She said: “It was a wonderful community that helped us a lot when I was young and is currently experiencing a horrible tragedy.”

The singer and host Marieme Ndiaye published a message of tolerance. “Hatred just as love has neither color nor religion. But love always triumphs. Love each other.”

Humorist Jean-Thomas Jobin grew up in Sainte-Foy. He had not the heart to laugh: “My beautiful town of Sainte-Foy, a news of infinite sadness …”

Originally from Saint-Romuald, Ariane Moffatt did not hide her indignation. “I am shamed this morning when I wake up. At the same time as bcp of love directed towards all the Muslims of OUR Quebec. ”

Bruno Pelletier, who pushed to Charlesbourg, joined his voice, noting: “The contagion of hate is everywhere … The city where I was born, Quebec, I never would have believed … Again:” I hurt men “.
