Imperial Canada in train disaster relief

| July 23, 2013

Imperial Tobacco Canada said yesterday it had made a $10,000 donation to the Salvation Army to support the charity’s emergency and disaster services for the community in Lac-Mégantic, Quebec.

On July 6, a train carrying oil exploded in this small lakeside town, killing more than 50 people.

“Our thoughts have been and continue to be with everyone in the community,” said Caroline Ferland, vice president, corporate and regulatory affairs. “Our entire family of employees join me in expressing our deepest sympathy to the people who are affected by this tragic train derailment.”

The Salvation Army’s efforts in Lac-Mégantic included delivering water, food, blankets and other disaster relief services to survivors.
