Trudeau Has Spoken Out On The First Anniversary Of The Nova Scotia Mass Shooting
One year after the deadly mass shooting in Nova Scotia, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau issued a statement remembering the 22 Canadians that were “senselessly killed.”
The PM acknowledged that the event — which became one of Canada's deadliest mass shootings — devastated communities across the province and the wider country, adding that “No person or community should ever have to experience such senseless violence and loss.”
He also took a moment to honour Constable Chad Morrison, an officer injured during the attack, and Constable Heidi Stevenson, who died in the line of duty.
“On some of the darkest days in Nova Scotia’s history, we saw – through their extraordinary example – the best of this country,” he said.
Trudeau concluded the heartfelt message by saying, “You are truly Nova Scotia Strong. Our support for you, like your resilience, is unwavering.”
