Canada’s unions are shocked and horrified to hear of the tragic mass shooting in Vaughan on Sunday evening. Canada’s unions wish to express their deepest sorrow and shock at the news of this horrible event, where five lives were brutally lost.

We want to extend our heartfelt condolences to the families of those who were killed in this senseless act of violence. Our sympathies go to the families and friends of those who lost their lives.

We were deeply saddened to hear that a member of our labour family was a victim of this tragic attack. Doreen Di Nino, wife of ATU Canada President, John Di Nino, was seriously injured and is currently being treated in hospital. All our thoughts and prayers are with John, Doreen and their family. We wish Doreen well and hope for a quick and fulsome recovery.
