Montreal protest calls for intervention after Syrian attack
There are calls for the international community to intervene following an alleged chemical attack in Syria that killed hundreds of people this week.
Syrian authorites deny the use of such weapons, but it seems there's increasing evidence it did.
Members of the Syrian-Canadian held a late Friday protest in downtown Montreal, in front of the International Civil Aviation Building on University.
"The images of children either trembling, their eyes rolled back, the colour of their skin changed or death from asphyxiation has really crossed every red line that the world or any human can put", organizer Faisal Alazem told CTV News.
There were children in attendance at the protest, who were laying on the ground wrapped in Syrian flags as a symbol of the children who lost their lives or who were injured in Wednesday's attack.
The Canadian and US governments say more proof is needed before they intervene in Syria.
