“Post-Tropical Storm Fiona has just made landfall in eastern Nova Scotia. It will continue to move northeastward today. High winds, heavy rain and storm surges are possible over areas of the Gulf of St. Lawrence,” detailed Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) in the morning.

In Quebec, the inhabitants of the Magdalen Islands have prepared, with the support of the government, to face the passage of the cyclone.

“We are thinking of the people of the North Shore, the Gaspé and the Magdalen Islands. Hurricane Fiona seems to be heading straight for the Islands. We hope for the best, but the whole government stands ready. You are made strong the Madelinots. Know that all of Quebec is with you,” said François Legault yesterday on Twitter.

The CAQ leader also announced that he was suspending his electoral tour until further notice: /1573469401965264909?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

Same reaction from Québec solidaire (QS). Party leader Gabriel Nadeau-Dubois changed his agenda and sent his support to the residents.

“Our press conference tomorrow is cancelled. We will reassess our schedule as the situation evolves. Courage to the people of the Côte-Nord, the Îles-de-la-Madeleine and the Gaspésie,” commented the solidarity leader in a tweet.

Dominique Anglade, for her part, declared that she was monitoring the situation closely and was in contact with the teams on the scene.

From his Twitter account, the leader of the Conservative Party of Quebec (PCQ) Eric Duhaime called on the Madelinots to be cautious.

Finally, PQ leader Paul St-Pierre Plamondon , who had canceled all his activities yesterday due to flu-like symptoms, told him “wholeheartedly with the Madelinots”.
