There are people from all over Canada - mostly volunteers - who are helping our American cousins! In times like these, there are no boundaries, no red lines, no politics, no walls, no conditions, no limits! There is serious humanitarian need and we need to generously respond, as we consistently have in other similar situations!
This is PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE, no matter who they are, what their religion is, what their color is, what their social condition or status is, etc.!
Let it continue!
