All Victorians were shocked and saddened to hear of the shooting tragedy that occurred in Christchurch, New Zealand yesterday.
On behalf of the residents of the Forest Hill District, I wish to express my sincere and profound sympathy following these dreadful events. This sympathy is extended to those directly affected, their families and loved ones, together with the citizens of New Zealand and the broader Muslim community.
What occurred was a despicable act that is to be wholeheartedly condemned. Our thoughts and prayers remain with the people of New Zealand at this terrible time.
