We have fond memories of our recent visit to your beautiful region and know that your resilience and sense of community will help you through these unbelievably difficult times. We would also like to express our deep appreciation to the first responders, the military and to community members who are doing so much to support others during this extremely challenging period. Our thoughts and prayers are very much with all of you as you work to recover and rebuild."

Nous gardons un excellent souvenir de notre récente visite dans votre belle région et nous sommes convaincus que votre résilience et votre esprit de collectivité vous aideront à traverser cette période difficile. Nous souhaitons également témoigner notre profonde reconnaissance aux premiers intetvenants, aux militaires et aux résidents qui travaillent sans relâche pour soutenir leur communauté en ces moments extrêmement éprouvants. Nos pensées et nos prières vous accompagnent dans vos efforts de rétablissement et de reconstruction."
