NDP STATEMENT REGARDING FLOODING IN NORTHERN SASKATCHEWAN

NDP's Georgina Jolibois (Desnethé—Missinippi—Churchill River) issued this statement as communities in North East Saskatchewan declare a state of emergency due to excessive rain and flood.

"I wish to extend my support to all communities in Northern Saskatchewan who are currently affected by the major floods in the eastern part of the province. Please do contact my office if you are seeking any type of help in this difficult time.

I am confident that the rescuers and emergency administrators are doing all their very best to insure the safety of those affected by the flood.

The residents of Northern Saskatchewan are known for their resilience and their acts of selflessness. We will come out of this stronger and more united."
