  • Ottawa – The Honourable Tobias C. Enverga, Jr., Senator from Ontario, expressed outrage at reports of the execution of Canadian Robert Hall by a terrorist group in the Philippines.

    “I am deeply sorrowed by the news of the loss of another Canadian in the Philippines,” Senator Enverga said in a statement.  “Canada will remain firm in working with our friends and allies around the world in responding to threats to Canadian values and interests.”

    Robert Hall, a native of Calgary, Alberta, was part of a group abducted from a resort island by the Abu Sayyaf , a terrorist organization with links to Al-Quaeda, in September 2015. Canadian John Ridsdel was executed earlier in April.

    Senator Enverga expressed his deepest condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Hall.

    “My family and I are praying for Robert’s loved ones to find strength and comfort in this difficult time,” Senator Enverga ended.
