Federal Retirees join Canadians in their sympathy for all British Columbians who are dealing with the widespread impact of catastrophic flooding this week.

“My thoughts and prayers are with all British Columbians, and our B.C.-based members and their families in affected communities that have been touched by this tragic weather event,” said President Jean-Guy Soulière. “It's unimaginable that a months’ worth of rainfall could fall in a single 24-hour period and result in such widespread devastation.”

We urge members in affected areas to seek updated information from EmergencyInfoBC.

The Canadian Red Cross is currently working with the B.C. government and a British Columbia Floods and Extreme Weather Appeal has been opened for Canadians who wish to help. Individual members may make personal donations to www.redcross.ca.
