"Thank you Canada, you offer is very much appreciated."
You're welcome. Many of us conservatives can't stand our government in Ottawa and wish they wouldn't go around dissing the US. However, the sentiments of most of Canadians at the destruction caused by the hurricane are heartfelt and sincere. It's front page news for us, and we grieve for all those who have been hurt as if it had happened in our own country, just like we did after 9/11. If there's anything Canada can do, I hope we will find a way to do it. Certainly many people will be donating to 'Katrina relief' funds, and of course praying for the victims. Perhaps our oil and natural-gas rich province can ramp up supplies to the US to make up the deficits. Like many Americans, we feel so helpless watching the news and not being able to help. We're not out to gloat, but out to help. Hopefully we can do something constructive in the middle of this immense tragedy.
:-) Greetings, friend in the North!
I'm sure Canadians and others empathize and will do what can be done to help. This is the bright side of human nature.
