OSHAWA, Ont. -- The woman who survived the recent mass shooting of her family in Oshawa, Ont., is thanking supporters, first responders and the medical workers aiding her recovery.
In a statement issued through the Durham Regional Police Service, Loretta Traynor says her family is "profoundly grateful" for the support they've received in the past week.
