    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    In both cases, the callers reported the schools’ front doors had been struck by bullets, but police cannot yet confirm if there is a link between the incidents, he said.

    The shots fired come at a time of rising tensions in Montreal related to the ongoing conflict between Palestinians and Israelis in the Middle East.

    On X, formerly known as Twitter, Anthony Housefather, MP for the riding of Mount Royal — where Talmud Torah is located — said more security had been added.

    “For me, violence and hate, antisemitism and scenes such as the ones that we saw at Concordia University or shots fired at Jewish Schools overnight, all of that is unacceptable, and it’s also not who we are,” said Trudeau.

    Quebec Premier François Legault told reporters at the same news conference that what happened to the two schools cannot be tolerated.

    Public Security Minister François Bonnardel told CBC he is concerned by the shots fired as well as the violence at Concordia University yesterday.

    I am not pro Israeli … nor am I pro Palestinian … I have sympathy and empathy for all and I believe that larger nations, especially our own country should promote a general stop to the war and bombing by any side.

    The reason these events are occurring is that our leadership is absent. The world sees and knows that something terrible is happening and the leaders are not doing anything to stop it.

    The fighting and killing has to stop and millions have to be spent on negotiation, resolution and communication. Otherwise, everyone will just spent many more millions and billions in the caveman mentality of killing as many people as possible to solve a problem.
