A Louisiana state senator has praised a Canadian search and rescue team. Senator Walter Boasso said a Vancouver-based team reached St. Bernard parish five days before the U.S. army got there.There are two messages in this story for me...
The first is I feel kind of proud of these men and women (all from the Vancouver area) who got down there quickly and did themselves proud (in awful circumstances).
The second is: FIVE days before the US Army got there!!! Someone was sleeping on the job. Castro could have got troops there to help sooner than that.
Here's an earlier link to some of the Canadians at work.
