Office of the Official Opposition
For Immediate Release

 
St. John’s, NL (April 20, 2020) – Newfoundland and Labrador's Official Opposition caucus is expressing its deepest sympathy to all Nova Scotians and the many others across our country who are reeling from the tragic events that unfolded on the weekend, taking many lives including the life of an RCMP officer.

Opposition leader Ches Crosbie said, "Our hearts go out to Nova Scotians as neighbours and friends. In our own close-knit communities, we feel the horror, shock and grief that has swept over Nova Scotia and across Canada on hearing the news that the unspeakable has happened. We want everyone involved to know that we are keeping you close in our thoughts and our prayers."

Opposition Justice critic Helen Conway Ottenheimer said, "It breaks our heart that an RCMP officer - a defender of the peace and also a mom - has tragically lost her life while doing her job. To her family, she was a wife, a daughter and a mother, but to all of us, she was also a hero. The entire policing community throughout our country is heart-broken by this tragic death in their own family. So, too, are the many millions of Canadians who rely on our peace officers to protect us."

She said, "Many families are torn apart right now, and we want all of them to know that Newfoundlanders and Labradorians, and the entire country, are grieving with you and surrounding you with our arms of support and love."
