Canadian PM says he’ll work closely with France against terror

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and French President Francois Hollande pledge to work more closely to stamp out the threat of terrorism.

In a telephone conversation, “the two leaders condemned the attacks and spoke of the importance of cooperating to counter the scourge of extremism and terrorism,” Harper’s office says in a statement.

Harper also offered condolences and “indicated that Canada stands in solidarity with France as it mourns this senseless loss of life and reiterated that Canada and its allies will not be intimidated by those who threaten peace, freedom, including freedom of the press, and democracy.”
