Our sincerest condolences to the North Vancouver and Lynn Valley communities affected by this past weekend’s tragedy.
As a charity that strives to provide a safe space to learn for our students, we are deeply saddened that these crimes occurred in a gathering place for community and education.
We hope we can soon reopen to the families we serve in this area and show that together we are resilient. In the meantime, LDS will be moving our North Vancouver sessions online this week out of respect for those involved and to ensure that our families are not unnecessarily affected by being in the area.
Our thoughts are with the victims—may they recover quickly. And to North Vancouver’s libraries, businesses, and residents, our love and strength goes out to everyone impacted.
Please know that the safety and health of our families are of the utmost importance to LDS. We encourage our families to reach out if they require further accommodations during these challenging times.
With deepest sympathy on behalf of the LDS team,
Rachel S. Forbes, Executive Director
