Premier Offers Condolences For Flood Victims In The Philippines
Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty today released the following statement regarding flash flooding in the Philippines:
"On behalf of all Ontarians, I want to express my deepest sympathies to those who have lost family and friends in flooding in the Philippines. Our thoughts and prayers also go out to the thousands left homeless.
Our province welcomes people from around the world -- so when tragedy strikes -- even far away -- we feel it close to home. I know there are Ontarians waiting by the phone, checking the news and looking for a sign from their loved ones right now, and our thoughts are with them, too.
As Ontarians, we stand together with all our citizens and with our friends in the Philippines in the difficult days ahead."
