Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard stressed the importance of respectful political dialogue in the wake of the shooting at a Quebec City mosque that claimed the lives of six people.
"When I say that words matter, it means that words can hurt, words can be knives slashing at people's conscience," he said Tuesday.
Speaking to reporters, Couillard said it's easy to demonstrate solidarity following a tragedy.
"The challenge is to do it one month, three months or a year from now, when an election campaign happens," he said, adding that the media also has a role to play.
Couillard urged politicians and the public to "think twice" about the "words we write, the words we utter."
