GPO leader Mike Schreiner issued the following statement in reaction to the shootings in Ottawa today:
I’m deeply upset by the shootings today in Ottawa.
My thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the shootings, especially the fallen soldier and his family.
There are no words to describe how shocked and saddened I am by this morning’s events.
I applaud Premier Wynne’s comments that we will not be silenced and that the public’s business at Queen’s Park will continue.
I would like to thank all first responders for their bravery in responding to this crisis and for putting their lives on the line to protect us.
