Canadians ‘truly in a climate crisis’ as Atlantic Canada continues to rebuild from Hurricane Fiona two weeks later, say ministers, MPs
It takes months of accounting to hone in on just how costly climactic events like Hurricane Fiona are, according to insurance experts and MPs. 'No part of the country is immune,' says Craig Stewart, of the Insurance Bureau of Canada. Since 2009, the insurance industry's paid losses has gone from $400-million a year to $2-billion a year.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who visited Port aux Basques in Newfoundland and Labrador, says that the town 'was hit hard when Hurricane Fiona made landfall this past weekend.' On Sept. 28, Trudeau met with people impacted by the storm and others who are rallying to help. Photograph courtesy of the official Twitter account of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
