Toronto Mayor Olivia Chow said she’s advising schools and places of worship to invest in “shatterproof glass” after a Jewish school was shot at last week amid increased anti-Israel incidents in the city.

Chow’s comments come after the Bais Chaya Mushka School for Girls, a Jewish elementary school of North York, Toronto, was shot at last Saturday. No injuries were reported, though one bullet went through one of the school windows.

The Toronto Mayor said she’s doing safety walks with “Places of worship or schools and all places if you have it insecure to look at what they have in their surroundings. So whether it’s shatterproof glass, fencing, lighting or trimming of bushes or cameras.” 

An astonished Premier Doug Ford stepped in, stating “Shatterproof glass? We have to have this in Ontario, in schools? Like where have we gone?” 

No arrests made

No arrests have been made after the shooting, though police released video footage of two suspects shooting at the school while outside of their dark-coloured vehicle in the early hours on Sunday morning.

Speaking indirectly towards whoever shot at the school, Premier Ford said “You want to come to Canada, you want to be a resident of Ontario, you get along with everyone. I don’t care what background, what religion, what race you come from, you know the diversity is, is our number one selling tool around the world.” 

Prime Minister Trudeau also condemned the incident, and all hate-related incidents “whether it be anti-Semitism or Islamophobia.” 

Toronto Police announced they arrested an anti-Israel, pro-Hamas protester for waving a terrorist flag on January 7 and are banning protests on highway overpasses.
