“It is a national tragedy”, he writes.
“It is the province of Quebec in whole crying with you today,” added the prime minister.
The vice-prime minister, Genevieve Guilbault, has also shared on Twitter a message of support to the mother of the girls.
“My heart weeps with that of the mother of Romy and Norah, to whom I wish a courage unimaginable,” can we read.
