Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard stressed the importance of respectful political dialogue in the wake of the shooting at a Quebec City mosque that claimed the lives of six people.

"When I say that words matter, it means that words can hurt, words can be knives slashing at people's conscience," he said Tuesday.

Speaking to reporters, Couillard said it's easy to demonstrate solidarity following a tragedy.
