Turkey Earthquake: Trudeau says Canada 'stands ready' to help

BY Connect News, Feb 6, 2023 6:37 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau says Canada is "ready" to provide help after powerful earthquakes hit Turkey and Syria, killing thousands of people.

In a statement, Trudeau called the reports and images from Turkey and Syria "devastating" and expressed his thoughts for those affected.

More than 2,600 people have been killed so far and the death toll is expected to rise as rescue workers and residents search for survivors of Monday's earthquake.

It was Turkey's worst earthquake this century and came before sunrise in bitterly cold weather, followed by another magnitude 7.7 earthquake in the afternoon.

Global Affairs Canada did not immediately respond to requests for comment on Monday.
