Second Message To Canadians

Why is it that western news outlets know about stuff like this before the people who matter?  Take into account that everyone is asleep right now, people may not have power and THEY DON’T SAY WHERE TO CATCH THE BUS!!!!!!  Just tell people where to be and they will be there.

And why only two buses if you have 2,000 Canadians registered in the affected areas?

The Government of Canada has chartered buses to transport Canadian citizens and other foreign nationals out of the area affected by the March 11th earthquake and tsunami. This transportation from the Sendai region to Tokyo will be available as of March 18.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade has been contacting Canadians known to be in the affected area to advise them of the availability of bus transportation.

Canadian citizens interested in boarding one of the available buses who have not been contacted should call the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo at 011-81-3-5412-6200 or DFAIT’s Emergency Operations Centre in Ottawa at 613-944-2471. Details will be provided to interested passengers when they call.

Priority will be given to Canadian citizens and their immediate family. Permanent residents are also eligible.

Passengers may bring one piece of luggage with them. Pets will not be allowed.

This transportation is provided at no charge.



Le gouvernement du Canada a nolisé des autobus dans le but de permettre aux Canadiens et aux citoyens de pays alliés de quitter la zone touchée par le tremblement de terre et le tsunami du 11 mars. Le passage depuis la région de Sendai vers Tokyo s’amorcera dès le 18 mars.

Le ministère des Affaires étrangères et du Commerce international cherche présentement à contacter les Canadiens qui se trouvent dans cette zone afin de les informer des possibilités qui s’offrent à eux.

Les Canadiens qui souhaitent monter à bord de l’un de ces autobus qui n’ont pas encore été contactés sont invités à appeler l’Ambassade du Canada à Tokyo au 011-81-3-5412-6200 ou directement au Centre des opérations d’urgence du MAECI à Ottawa au 613-944-2471.

La priorité sera accordée aux citoyens canadiens et aux membres de leur famille immédiate. Les résidents permanents sont aussi éligibles.

Une limite d’un bagage par passager s’appliquera. Les animaux domestiques ne seront pas admis.

Ce service est offert gratuitement.
