Statement from Mayor Rob Ford on the earthquake in Japan
"On behalf of City Council and all Toronto residents, I want to extend my deepest sympathies to the people of Japan, especially in the areas devastated by today's earthquake and tsunami.

"I have contacted Mr. Tetsuo Yamashita, Consul General of Japan in Toronto, and have offered my condolences and support during this time."

Toronto is home to approximately 14,500 people of Japanese origin who contribute to the diversity that makes Toronto special. When a tragedy like this occurs, it is felt by everyone in Toronto.
