Statement from the Honourable Diane Finley on explosions at the Boston Marathon

I was shocked to learn of the explosions that occurred today during the running of the Boston Marathon. 

My thoughts and prayers are with those injured or affected by this horrible and senseless incident. 

Canadians in Boston requiring emergency assistance should contact the Consulate General at (617) 247-5100.

Friends and relatives seeking information on Canadian citizens believed to be in the area should contact 1-800-387-3124 or sos@international.gc.ca.
