The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge send message of support to Canadian flood victims


THE Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have sent a message of support to the people of Canada after devastating floods claimed three victims and displaced tens of thousands.


In a message to Canada’s Prime Minister Stephen Harper, William said he and his wife were saddened to hear of the deaths in the province of Alberta.

The city of Calgary in Alberta has been hit hard by the flooding, although waters are now receding.

Its famous annual rodeo festival the Calgary Stampede was visited by the Duke and Duchess in 2011 when they toured Canada a few months after their wedding.

The Duke said in his message to Mr Harper: “Catherine and I have been saddened to learn of the deaths and destruction caused by the unprecedented flooding throughout the Province of Alberta.

“Please pass on our best wishes to the Lieutenant-Governor and Premier of Alberta and to the brave emergency services and all those volunteering to help their neighbours during this ongoing period of intense efforts.

“Please be assured of our continued thoughts and prayers for all those caught up in the flooding.”

Three bodies have been recovered since the flooding began last Thursday in southern Alberta.

Torrential rain had filled up creeks and rivers that were unable to contain the downpours and the waters surged over the banks and inundate communities.

Alberta’s premier Alison Redford has called the natural disaster the worst flooding in the province’s history and said rebuilding could take 10 years.

NEVER *despise* correction,for those who correct you ,truly LOVE you .They are willing to displease you and possibly lose your friendship ,rather than see you destroyed. Those who *despise* you ,on the other hand ,will allow you to FAIL...because what do they care ?

Every praise is not good and every criticism is not evil..!

Their secretary, when writing it, should have been told to do something more heartfelt.

Did they even sign it?
