Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie Grégoire Trudeau sign a book of condolences for the victims of the Orlando shooting tragedy at the United States Embassy in Ottawa. US Ambassador Bruce Heyman and his wife Vicki were present, and the group shared several rounds of embraces, according to media present at the signing. Forty-nine people were killed when a gunman opened fire and took hostages in a LGBTQ dance club in the early hours of June 12. It was the worst mass shooting in American history.
