It is with saddened and shocked hearts that the tragic news unfolded Friday afternoon and later into the evening of the 50 dead at the hands of a planned terrorist attack. Hard to believe that our small country harboured right wing extremists with such hatred.

We pride ourselves as a country which embraces cultural diversity,  tolerance, kindness and compassion. Sadly this was not the case demonstrated today.

Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have died and for all their families and friends. R.I.P.
