Statement by Dr. Hedy Fry on the Ottawa shootings

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 22, 2014
 
OTTAWA, ON – Like all Canadians, my thoughts are with the family of the Canadian Forces member killed in the horrific shooting at the National War Memorial. Our very democracy was savagely attacked today.
 
I would like to express my deep gratitude to our security forces for their swift and courageous response, and to Kevin Vickers, Parliament’s Sergeant-at-Arms, for his heroism in Centre Block today while we were under lockdown. On behalf of my constituents in Vancouver Centre, and all Canadians, thank you.
 
Mr. Trudeau has spoken with the Prime Minister and offered the Liberal Party of Canada’s absolute support as we seek to prosecute those responsible for this attack, and prevent events like it from happening in the future.
 
On the advice of Parliamentary security officials, my constituency office remains closed until further notice. Updates will be available at HedyFry.com.
