Today We Need Your Help!— Come Hungry!



Displaced Fort McMurray residents got a sobering drive-by view of their burned city Friday in a convoy that was moving evacuees south to reunite with families and friends.

Officials said shifting winds were giving the embattled northern Alberta city a break, but they added the fire that forced 80,000 people from their homes remained out of control and was likely to burn for weeks.

The evacuees are spread all over Alberta and as we speak are busy trying to get kids registered in school, find a permanent place to live, and deal with what is happening.

Canadians have been so willing to extend help when help is needed. THIS is the Canada I grew up in. THIS is the Canada I want the world to see
