(TLN) On a tour of flood-devastated Sainte-Marthe-sur-le-Lac north of Laval last weekend, Premier François Legault announced that the provincial government will be donating $1 million to the Red Cross to help victims of the flood.
“This will help for meals, lodging and medication,” Legault said. “There are children who will need clothing, because people had to get out in a hurry.”
With water levels on Lake of Two Mountains expected to remain at high levels by the middle of this week, residents of the area were not expected to their homes any time soon. He said the Red Cross could be counted on to provide help until it becomes possible.
