For whatever it is worth... As a Canadian citizen and on behalf of my friends, coworkers and family, please accept our support and condolences during this crisis. If there is anything Canadian civilians can do to help Muscovites during this crisis, please let us know.
Please express our best wishes to the hostages and their families. Terrorism hurts all free-thinking people, even those thousands of kilometers away in the relative peace of Canada. When one nation suffers an act of terrorism, we all lose our sense of security. I am not sure how to properly phrase the levels of anger, fear and sorrow this crisis has brought out in the people I know. I can only assume that most Canadians are feeling the same way.
Best of luck, Be well,
Jim Hedger Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
