For Bain, the news was especially unsettling just weeks after she sat a few blocks away from a gun attack in Toronto’s Danforth neighbourhood.

On July 22, Bain was sitting with her family at City Betty restaurant on the Danforth when news broke that a shooter had opened fire nearby.

“My son-in-law looked at his phone and said, ‘Holy (expletive), there’s an active shooting just down the street,’” Bain recalls.

The attack claimed the lives of a 10-year-old girl and an 18-year-old woman, and injured 12 others.

Bain — whose Fredericton home is a fair distance from Brookside Dr., the site of Friday’s shootings — was emotional thinking of the victims of both attacks and their families.

“I’m praying for everyone who was involved and who lost loved ones. And I hope this stops.”
