Statement: Mayor Miller comments on Philippine disaster
On behalf of all Torontonians, I extend deepest condolences and sympathies to all Filipino-Canadians and especially those with family and friends in the areas devastated by Tropical Storm Ketsana and the subsequent flooding this past weekend.

At more than 100,000 strong, the Filipino community is one of the largest and most active in Toronto, so when tragedies like this occur, it reverberates through every neighbourhood in the city.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by this horrific natural disaster.

I have contacted the Philippine Consulate to determine how Torontonians can best assist. In the meantime, I am suggesting anyone wishing to make immediate donations to relief efforts do so through the Red Cross at or by calling 1-800-418-1111.
