A Message from His Majesty The King regarding Storm Fiona

Published 28 September 2022

The King has sent the following message to Governor General Her Excellency the Right Honourable Mary May Simon following the devastation of storm Fiona:

"My wife and I were most concerned to hear of the appalling devastation caused by storm Fiona and particularly wanted to send our profound sympathy to the people of Atlantic Canada whose lives, livelihoods and properties have been so badly affected by this disaster. 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."

"Mon épouse et moi avons été très préoccupés par la dévastation effroyable causée par la tempête Fiona et nous tenions tout particulièrement à exprimer notre sincère sympathie aux habitants du Canada atlantique dont les vies, les moyens de subsistance et les propriétés ont été si durement touchés par cette catastrophe. 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."
