Foreign Affairs spokeswoman Ambra Dickie confirmed the seven deaths and said three other Canadians were injured in the attack, but declined to provide names or hometowns of the victims, citing privacy laws.

Bad enough the Harpocrite government has condoned the Israeli war of aggression on the civilian population in Lebanon. Now the so called accountable transparent governmentof the Harpocrites hides behind privacy laws not to name names when Canadians are killed by their pals from the Israeli Defense Forces. The silence from the Harper government over the murder of Canadians by the Imperialist Israeli's is deafening, then they try and cover it up. And then only after these deaths do they bother to start planning to evacuate Canadians from this war zone. Duh Oh.
