Prime Minister Justin Trudeau released a statement Thursday morning commemorating the 2014 shootings at Parliament Hill which left a Canadian soldier dead.

“Six years ago today, Canadians across the country were shocked and saddened by the terrorist attack at the National War Memorial and Parliament Hill in Ottawa that claimed the life of Corporal Nathan Cirillo, a sentry guarding the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, and left several others injured," the statement reads.

The statement also commemorated a car ramming in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu which took place two days earlier, in which an ISIS-inspired terrorist murdered Warrant officer Patrice Vincent.

Both terrorists were shot dead by police before they could be taken into custody.

Both men were murdered by converts to Islam who had become radicalized. Trudeau described the attacks as being motivated by "hate" and that Canadians can counter such hatred by "promoting the values of freedom, diversity, and inclusion that define us as Canadians."

"On behalf of the Government of Canada, I encourage all Canadians to take a moment today to mourn these two members of the Canadian Armed Forces. I also invite you to join me in thanking our service members and all those who work hard every day to keep us, our communities, and our country safe and free,” Trudeau's statement finishes.
