Carleton University is appalled and saddened by the deadly hit and run in London, Ont., that took the life of four family members who authorities say were targeted specifically because they were of Muslim faith. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their loved ones, and all those affected by this tragedy. We mourn alongside all residents of London and stand in solidarity with the Muslim community.

The flags on campus will be at half-mast in memory and honour of those who lost their lives.

Support is available for the Carleton community. Students can reach out to Health and Counselling Services: Carleton Health & Counselling Walk-In Clinic Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The Naseeha Muslim Youth Helpline is available at: 1-833-294-8650. Faculty and staff can access the Employee & Family Assistance Program (EFAP): (613) 725-5676. After Hours Emergencies: 1-844-720-1212.
