    “For security reasons, I will not answer to your question,” is limited to say Régis Labeaume, when questioned by journalists on the package sent to the Mosque on Friday.

    The previous day he had gone out in the rule against the group The Pack, who have denounced the immigration and islam. He suggested that its members keep quiet in the territory of his city because they are monitored and that any illegal action will be punished. Was he aware of the threats made to muslims in the Mosque when he made these remarks?

    “I don’t want to say it. I just want to tell you that when he gets something significant in Quebec city, I am informed. Then for all sorts of reasons, I can not answer.”

    The police of Quebec is currently conducting a survey on a parcel filed Friday in the great Mosque and which contained a Koran marked with an X, a picture of pigs in the mud and a message of hate. The Royal Canadian mounted police is also involved in the case. “This whole cell is in operation to make the investigation.”
