Statement on the Fire at Notre Dame, Progressive Canadian Nanaimo-Ladysmith candidate Brian Marlatt 

For Immediate Release:
Nanaimo-Ladysmith, April 15, 2019 –  Progressive Canadian candidate in the Nanaimo-Ladysmith by-election, May 6, 2019, Brian Marlatt, today, released the following statement on the fire at the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris.
It is with horror and dismay that we are witnessing at this hour the fire at Notre Dame in Paris.  Notre Dame is one of the greatest gifts of western culture, Christianity, the history, art, culture and people of France to the world, and amongst the most beloved symbols of all that is good in the world.  Our hearts are being broken.  We weep for the people of France.  We weep for all humanity. We are something less for this loss.  We will become something more by remembering how important and fragile our historical legacy is and why we must take care to preserve it.

He added,
My parents, but not I, have had the privilege of visiting Paris, standing under the great rose of the  cathedral, being present with the art and place of faith that is, still, in our hearts, Notre Dame.  Now I never will.  We will light a candle there too.

Brian Marlatt studied early modern history at the University of Western Ontario.  He is the Progessive Canadian candidate in the Nanaimo-Ladysmith by-election, May 6, 2019.
