Air Canada helped evacuate New Orleans

Air Canada helped evacuate New Orleans

Did you know that Air Canada helped evacuate New Orleans last year? Air Canada! No, not repatriation of Canadian citizens. Local, New Orleans residents. They flew them from New Orleans to places like San Antonio, Texas.

The crews gave their time. That is what I call generous.

I found this out thanks to a reader of the Globe and Mail.

I remember hearing about that at the time, and it made me smile.

Often, disasters really do bring out the best in people. (Of course, they bring out the worst too, but this is a nice story, no need to ruin it with that!)
