Statement from Opposition Leader Zach Churchill on Mass Casualty Report
March 30, 2023 – (Halifax, NS)
Today is a difficult day for the province. I listened to the report concerning the events of April 2020 alongside the families of the victims. It served as a stark reminder of the profound loss this province experienced.
To those families, loved ones, and friends – we recognize your grief and continue to stand with you. I am inspired by the strength and resilience you’ve shown through what you’ve endured.
As we approach nearly three years since this tragedy, we must continue to remember and honour those victims.
This report represents an important step in our province's journey to healing from this event. Reflection, accountability, and meaningful change are all important facets in building safe communities.
We are stronger when we stand together. As we look beyond this report, we will continue to monitor the implementation of these recommendations. Tragedies of this nature must be followed up with purposeful change to prevent anything like this from happening again.
Days like today are not easy. My thoughts are with all Nova Scotians as we grieve, support, and move forward together.
