  1. This type of community support, as well as the article regarding Sarah Hall’s Adopt a Family program, and the many other volunteer programs are what really differentiates communities from one another.
    Municipal governments, provincial, and federal need to focus on infrastructure, education, health care, etc., but get out of the way of communities and citizens trying to make a difference.
    Taxing us so they can “dole out” dollars in grants is counter productive.
    When success or failure of a project hangs on a “ grant application” people become complacent about participating.
    As well, leaving less and less money in our pockets leaves people nervous about commitment , financially and in spirit.
    Hats off, ( well, touques off) to these and all the others working to build this community
