Prime Minister Stephen Harper issued the following statement on the
recent developments in Libya:

"We find the actions of the government, firing upon its own citizens, to
be outrageous and unacceptable and we call on the government to cease
this violence immediately.

demonstrators, including their right to freedom of expression and
assembly. We encourage the government of Libya to engage in peaceful
dialogue with its people, towards political and economic reform.

"On behalf of our Government, I would like to express my condolences to
the families of those who have been killed during the demonstrations"

Statement by Minister Cannon on Situation of Civil Unrest in Libya

The Honourable Lawrence Cannon, Minister of Foreign Affairs, today issued the following statement concerning the increasingly volatile and violent situation in Libya:

“Canada strongly condemns the violent crackdowns on innocent protesters that have resulted in many injured and killed. We call on the Libyan security forces to respect the human rights of demonstrators and uphold their commitment to freedom of speech and the right to assembly. The Libyan authorities must show restraint and stop the use of lethal force against protesters.

“The Government of Canada advises against non-essential travel to Libya because of civil unrest and demonstrations and the potential threat of terrorism in the country. Demonstrations are taking place, particularly in the eastern part of the country, including the cities of Benghazi, Derna, Baida and Tobruk.

“Canadians are advised to avoid all gatherings and demonstrations and to stay away from places where they may occur, because they may turn violent without warning. Canadians should monitor local news reports, take appropriate steps to increase their personal security and contact the Canadian embassy in Tripoli for assistance.
