PM Trudeau Reacts to Mass Casualty Commission's Report

Mass Casualty Commission Submits Report

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says the content of the Mass Casualty Commission's report contained "firm and clear recommendations". However, he reiterated the need to get resolutions around the issues right. Therefore, it might require a bit of time to ensure accuracy. The Prime Minister was speaking in reaction to the final submission of the report on the " most lethal mass shooting in Canadian history in Nova Scotia." News in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic said a perpetrator shot and killed 22 people, one of whom was pregnant. The Governments of Canada and Nova Scotia established a Mass Casualty Commission to study the case and "set out lessons as well as recommendations" to prevent future occurrences.

We will do all we can to ensure safe communities.

Prime Minister Trudeau, while commending the commission for a complete assignment, says despite the sense of urgency on the case, the final submission will take time to absorb to create constructive action plans.
