Three Canadians confirmed dead in Haiti earthquake

Two more Canadians are confirmed to be victims of the devastating and powerful earthquake in Haiti.

Georges and Mireille Anglade have been confirmed dead by their daughter.

She says her parents were visiting friends in Port-au-Prince and were killed when the house they were in collapsed.

George was a Montreal university professor for 30 years.

The Anglades are the second and third Canadians to die in the catastrophic earthquake.

The other victim was Ontario nurse Yvonne Martin, who arrived in Haiti’s capital on Tuesday afternoon, about 90 minutes before the earthquake hit.

Two RCMP officers and former Quebec MP Serge Marcil are still missing.

Meanwhile, Haitians in Calgary are still desperately trying to contact relatives and friends in Port-au-Prince.

“All they’re saying is that it’s bad news all over the place in Port-au-Prince. So far that’s all we’ve heard. We know friends who have already died when their house collapsed,” the president of the Haiti Association of Calgary tells City TV.

Others say the worst part about this ordeal is not knowing.

Many are having late nights and early mornings, repeatedly calling relatives or sending e-mails. Most attempts go unanswered.

Some phone lines are down and there are still power outages across the Caribbean country.
