On behalf of the entire City of Windsor, I offer my best wishes to those injured at the shooting at an east-end bowling alley on Saturday. My thoughts and prayers are with those injured and I hope that each of the victims makes a quick recovery. After hearing more about the events on scene, it is a minor miracle that no injuries are considered non-life threatening.

Like everyone, I am shocked and disturbed by this needless violence. After two years of pandemic restrictions, Windsor residents are craving an opportunity to socialize with friends and neighbours and visiting a local bowling alley should be among the safest venues to do so. I’m grateful for the swift response of the Windsor Police and first responders and hope the perpetrator is brought to swift justice.
