"One year ago, 22 Canadians were senselessly killed and three more were injured when a gunman went on a rampage in small towns across Nova Scotia," Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said in a statement ahead of the church ceremony to commemorate the tragedy.

In 2019, Trudeau's Liberal party ran on a promise of stricter gun control, but the Nova Scotia tragedy stiffened that resolve.
