"You’re not alone": Trudeau marks 1st anniversary of Nova Scotia mass shooting

CA, 19 Apr 2021
On Sunday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau marked the one-year anniversary of Canada’s deadliest mass shooting, telling the victims’ families: “you are not alone.”

On April 18, 2020, a gunman dressed as an RCMP officer driving a replica cruiser assaulted his common-law spouse in Portapique – a small, rural community outside Halifax – and embarked on a 13-hour shooting and arson spree.

“This act of evil, it will not define the memories of all those we lost a year ago today. It will not define the communities that still grieve them,” Trudeau said.

In total, 22 people were killed at 16 separate crime scenes on that day in April 2020.
