"Like Ontarians from across the province, I was shocked and saddened to hear of the terrible tragedy at Westboro station in Ottawa. This is a difficult day for our nation's capital, and my heart goes out to the victims and their loved ones. I know that the people of Ontario have them in their hearts tonight.
I also want to applaud the heroic efforts of our first responders, our emergency room nurses and doctors, and everyone who answered the call today. You have demonstrated, once again, that our province is fortunate to have the very best on the front lines, working to save lives, every day.
To the people of Ottawa, know that the rest of Ontario shares in your sorrow tonight. We grieve with you, and we stand with you."
