“I want to extend my deepest condolences to the LGBTQ community and the families and friends of those killed,” said Mungall. “I know Kootenay residents share that sentiment and want to send their messages of kindness and love as well. My office is open for them to do that.”

“This is the largest mass shooting the United States has ever seen. By targeting the LGBTQ community, it is an act of hatred,” Mungall continued. “With a presidential nominee candidate to the south using this tragedy to spread his message of hate, we must stand with those who need love and support in the face of this tragedy.”

Everyone is welcome to stop by Mungall’s community office at 433 Josephine Street in Nelson from Monday to Thursday, 10am-4pm to write a post card that will be mailed to the City or Orlando and the Pulse nightclub.
