Ottawa, ON, April 20, 2020 – The President of the Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC), Lorraine Whitman, today issued the following statement on the shootings in Portapique, Nova Scotia:

“I was incredibly saddened to learn of the senseless violence that took place in Portapique and neighbouring communities yesterday. As a proud member of Glooscap First Nation and having lived in Nova Scotia all of my life, this tragedy truly hits home.

“My heart goes out to those who have lost loved ones due to this senseless act of violence. In times like these, we must support one another.

“The bravery of the local Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) is always on display, but today we thank them for their dedication to our community, especially Constable Heidi Stevenson, a 23-year veteran of the Force whom we lost during the violence.

“Nova Scotians are resilient, and together, we will get through this.”
