A Statement from Fort Erie (Ontario) Mayor Wayne Redekop:
Posted May 16th, 2022 on Niagara At Large
FORT ERIE in Niagara, Ontario – “The residents of Fort Erie are shocked and horrified at the senseless shooting of innocent people in Buffalo.
“The knowledge that the shooter was racially motivated is extremely troubling. There is no place for hate and racism in our societies.
“We grieve with the families of those killed and maimed (this past Saturday, May 14th), and all residents of the City of Good Neighbours. We all have an obligation to speak out against and oppose the ideologies that promote hate, racism and discrimination.
“There are close family ties between our two communities, as well as deep friendships among our residents and those of Buffalo. In many respects, we are one community, connected by our history, geography and culture.
“This type of incident has an impact on all of us on both sides of the border.”
