As Canada’s foreign minister, Francois-Phillipe Champagne expressed solidarity with the embattled people of Lebanon, and is pushing for more economic and political reforms – the New York Times is reporting that many of Lebanon’s young people “are losing hope.”
CBC reports, “In recent weeks, the Lebanese people have taken to the streets demanding an independent investigation into the explosion to protest widespread corruption in their country.”
Champagne told The Canadian Press that Canada is, “willing to commit the RCMP to work alongside French national police and the FBI in an independent investigation of the explosion.”
The people of Beirut continue day after day to re-build amid the heartbreaking mourning of the loss of loved ones.
Young and old are struggling to recover after the August 4, 2020 explosion.
As humankind struggles through this incredibly difficult time in modern history, many living and working on the front-lines in Beirut are calling out to us for prayers.
More than 200 people died and over 6,000 were wounded. Many are still missing and more than 300,000 are displaced. Most people lost a loved one in their car, home or business.
