Statement from Tom Mulcair on the La Loche Community School Shooting

NDP Leader Tom Mulcair made the following statement:

I wish to echo the words of my friend and colleague, Georgina Jolibois, the former mayor of La Loche and the current MP of the area, regarding today's tragedy.

Catherine and I are shocked and heartbroken after hearing the news of a shooting at the La Loche Community School.

We send our love to the families of those who lost their lives, those injured and the entire community that has greatly suffered this terrible loss.

And I would like to thank Georgina for going above and beyond in supporting her community in the aftermath of this loss of life.

We may not have the words to describe what happened today but, no matter where we are, we can all feel the devastating pain in La Loche tonight.
