Canadian philanthropy.

Our neighbors to the north appear pretty proud of the Search and Rescue program. And why shouldn't they? They don't have anything else to be proud of, unless you consider it an accomplishment that a majority of the country doesn't speak French.

The world knows that Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana have people waiting on their roofs, counting on a helicopter to save them from hypothermia, hunger, disease and poisonous snakes.

Quebec can spare one helicopter to help their French-speaking compatriots in Louisiana? Is the Canadian Search and Rescue on a socialist-government mandated summer holiday?
