Message from the Governor General
following the earthquake in Haiti
OTTAWA—I am following, with great attention and concern, the emerging reports regarding the earthquake that struck Haiti with force, and which was felt elsewhere in the region.
This natural disaster has hit a country with an extremely fragile infrastructure, where many buildings are already unstable, and where living conditions are often very difficult. I fear for its people.
I would like all Haitians to know that they are not alone and that the people of Canada will respond to this emergency.
