Queen Elizabeth released a heartbreaking statement on her 94th birthday in the wake of the tragic shooting in Nova Scotia.
The Royal Family’s official social media pages posted a statement from the Queen and her husband Prince Philip sending out their condolences to the Governor General and Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia, regarding the mass shooting that killed 19 people.
The statement said:
“Prince Philip and I have been deeply saddened by the appalling events in Nova Scotia, and we send our condolences to the friends, friends and colleagues of those who have lost their lives. I also pay tribute to the bravery and sacrifice of the officers from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and other police services who selflessly responded to these devastating attacks, and to the emergency services who are supporting those who have been injured and affected. My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Nova Scotia and all Canadians at this tragic time,” the Queen concluded.
The shooting was one of the worst that ever happened in Canada.
