The Queen's message following the train crash in Quebec

Published 9 July 2013

It was with profound sadness that I learned of the tragic events that have befallen the town of Lac-Mégantic. The loss of life and livelihoods has shocked us all. Prince Philip joins me in hoping that in time it will be possible to rebuild both the property and the lives of those who have been affected. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
