Mr. Sarkis Assadourian (Don Valley North)
Mr. Speaker, on January 17, 1994 at approximately 7.30 a.m. eastern standard time a severe earthquake measuring 6.6 on the Richter scale struck the city of Los Angeles.
Due to the severity of the earthquake over 25,000 people were left homeless, 45 are dead and over 2,000 are injured.
I wish to express my great sense of sorrow to these individuals and at the same time urge the Prime Minister on behalf of this House to convey our condolences to President Clinton and the victims of the disaster.
No doubt in the near future when we know the full extent of this earthquake we will know more about this tragedy.
