As the water continues to rise in Ste. Anne-de-Bellevue Mayor Paola Hawa is grateful for the City of Kirkland that has stepped up and lent two city trucks to their neighbours in need.
“We are evacuating vulnerable seniors starting this afternoon,” Hawa stated. “The most hard hit so far is Rue Ste. Anne by the church.”
