Statement from Minister Greg Rickford

Since hearing reports of tornado activity near Sioux Narrows-Nestor Falls, I have been in constant communication with local leaders and government officials to initiate supports. We are employing a whole of government approach to ensure community members have the resources they need.

We are thankful that no injuries have been reported at this time and appreciate the tireless efforts of Hydro One and emergency responders. I want to thank neighbouring communities who have volunteered to support those affected. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as they become available.

We want those in the affected areas, and the families that have been impacted, to know that we have their backs during this difficult time.

MPP Greg Rickford
