MP Applauds Fundy Royal Communities During Crisis

Alaina Lockhart, Member of Parliament for Fundy Royal, applauded the efforts of community volunteers, officials, and helpful neighbours as they worked together to save properties and keep each other safe during historic flooding along the Saint John River basin.

“Over the past several days I have seen neighbours come together to help each other through this crisis. It has been amazing to see the coordination of volunteers under the leadership of the Provincial EMO and the Municipalities. Today I was pleased to have Minister LeBlanc on the ground in Quispamsis to see the level of damage. He affirmed to us that the resources of the Government of Canada were available at the request of the Emergency Measures Organization. Over the coming days I will continue to work with him, the Premier, and municipalities to support the people of Fundy Royal.”Alaina LockhartMember of Parliament for Fundy Royal
