On behalf of the town and Council, Mayor Rob Burton condemns the terrorist attacks by Hamas and joins in sympathy with all residents whose ties to those caught in the conflicts have them mourning the loss of loved ones and praying for the safety of surviving family and friends. 

Safety and well-being for all Oakville residents are the community’s top priorities. Oakville achieves its interfaith harmony through its tradition of respectful community dialogue and cooperation. 

Mayor Burton and Council urge peaceful ends to all of the conflicts now afflicting the world and respect for peace and human dignity here at home and abroad, especially for civilians, who should be protected under international law.
