It would be a great time for Canadians to have hockey to change their minds as news coverage is focused on the tragedy that took place in Nova Scotia over the weekend. At least 23 innocent people lost their lives during a gunman’s 12-hour rampage across several Nova Scotia communities. It was Canada’s deadliest mass shooting. The rampage started in Portapique and ended in Enfield on Sunday.
Everyone is in shock and heartbroken over the tragedy. Heidi Stevenson, an RCMP officer who was killed in the shooting spree, was from Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby’s home town of Cole Harbour.
He took the time on Tuesday to send his condolences to the families and a positive message to look ahead at better times.
“I would like to extend my deepest condolences to the family of Heidi Stevenson of Cole Harbour, and to all the families who have lost loved ones and have been affected by this terrible act,” Crosby said.
“This tragic event has devastated communities throughout Nova Scotia, but I know we will come together and help each other get through this. I am thinking of everyone at home.”
We too believe in the resiliency of her province and are thinking about them during this difficult time.
