Good afternoon. Thank you for the invitation to be here with you as we remember the destructive and terrifying earthquake that struck this city and the surrounding areas two years ago today.
It claimed the lives of 185 people and because of that, February 22nd will always be a poignant day for the people of Canterbury.
I would like to acknowledge and welcome here the family and friends of those who lost their lives.
I know this is a difficult day for you.
Your grief is still raw and only time can help to numb the pain of your loss.
