Statement by Erica Kelly

I deplore violence against all people, regardless of where they live.

The U.S. mass shootings in Parkland, FL, Sandy Hook, CT and Las Vegas, NV, caused heartache and anger for me, like for countless others. In the heat of the moment, in a personal conversation with a friend, I lashed out about extremist Americans who advocate starting a civil war to achieve their political objectives. I was wrong to take the bait. My comments do not reflect how I live my life and how I treat others. For that, I offer my unreserved apology.

My family are law-abiding gun owners in Northern Ontario. What I want to see is a culture of responsible gun-ownership, like we already have in Canada. #NeverAgain.
