It has been a profoundly sad weekend for Nova Scotia. We would like to offer our heartfelt sympathy to everyone effected by the unimaginable shooting in Nova Scotia. As the impact of the mass shooting continues to unfold, families and communities across the province are grieving and are in a state of shock. In these uncertain times, a tragedy of this magnitude will have an effect on all of us. Please be kind to yourself and reach out to your loved ones. We must stand together in support of one another. If you need a little more extra help, please do not hesitate to reach out to your employers Employee Assistance Program.  Also, here are some valuable resources:

We would like to thank all of the RCMP and police officers for their hardwork and bravery. We are so grateful for each and every one of you and our thoughts are with all involved.

Please take care of yourselves.
