Statement by Emilie Coyle on Widespread Storm Damage

Thinking about everyone that has been affected by the tornado that hit Ottawa and Gatineau. The damage is extensive and hits us all close to home. 

My campaign volunteers and I will be helping to clean-up in College Ward neighbourhoods, this week-end. 

Today we have set up a coffee station on Iris St. between Navaho Dr. and Field St. for those in the area.

Thank you to all the first responders including Ottawa Police, Ottawa Fire Service, Ottawa Paramedics, Red Cross, Hydro crews, tree removal personnel, and OC Transpo and city staff. Thanks also to healthcare professionals for all your hard work. 

A reminder to folks to please stay off roads in affected areas to allow responders and crews to do their important work.

Stay safe everyone and take care of each other. #ottstorm
