This weekend’s brutal massacre in Orlando shocked and saddened us all.

On behalf of Canada’s 120,000 Teamsters, I would like to offer our sincerest condolences to the American people and to the families of the victims. I would also like to wish a full recovery to all those injured.

The Teamsters stand with the LGBTQ2 community in these difficult times. The hatred behind this attack is nothing less than a hatred of the values of dignity and equality that define us as a society.

In solidarity,

François Laporte
