“Lac La Biche County grieves with our sister municipality, the City of Edmonton, after yesterday’s terrorist attack that injured a number of innocents. Those who were injured, along with their families, need our support, and I would like to thank the first responders and emergency services staff who are working diligently to keep Albertans safe.
I wish to remind everyone that cowardly attacks like these are intended to divide us, and have no place in our communities. We must stand together. Canada’s strength has always been in its embrace of social and cultural diversity, and we are better when we live, work, and raise our families in solidarity with one another. Let’s remember that as we help the victims and bring those responsible to justice.”
