Queen Elizabeth sends sympathies after L’Isle-Verts fire


Queen Elizabeth sent her sympathies to the community of L’Isle-Verts Friday, a day after a fire tore through a senior’s housing complex in the Quebec town, killing at least five people.

Thirty people are still missing and the death toll is expected to rise as crews search the wreckage of the building for victims.

The Queen’s message reads:

Prince Philip and I were saddened to learn of the serious fire at the seniors’ residence in L’Isle-Verts, Quebec yesterday.

The Duke of Edinburgh and I send our sympathy to the families of those who have died and our thoughts and prayers to all those who have been injured in this terrible event.

  1. My Condoleances. I blame the draconian anti-tobacco laws for that one. One has a right to smoke, it’s up to you to decide, not the gov. If only there was a room built just for smokers, this would not have happen, I’m sure the gentleman would have been more than happy to use it, instead of freezing outside. Smoking is not a criminal act, the law-makers, I am not sure…..

  2. So sad same génération to Her
