Christchurch Earthquake: PM Arden says, ‘It is time to look ahead with hope’
Today marks a sad day for New Zealand. It’s been 10 years since the disastrous earthquake hit New Zealand’s South Island city of Christchurch, killing 185 people, injuring thousands and leaving a trail of destruction. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said it was time to look ahead with hope for the future of New Zealand’s second-largest city. “It’s been a hugely difficult decade for this city - at times I’m sure it’s felt impossible,” Ardern said in a speech at the memorial.
