Thoughts from England

I have visited Canada several times in the last few years, including Calgary, Canmore, Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper.

I just wanted to say how sorry I am to learn of the devastation you are experiencing due to the extensive flooding.

I am only an overseas visitor, but I shed a tear when I saw the recent news reports of the damage caused to places where I have actually walked. I can't imagine what the impact must be for the people who live and work in these areas.

This is, I know, a somewhat futile message from so far away but I wish you well with the clean up operation and management of the many tourists who visit your beautiful country.

I love Canada and hope to visit again soon. Wonderful country, wonderful people!

Thank you everyone for your thoughts. It was really hard yesterday to sit and watch the TV coverage of what was happening to my home town, I did shed some tears! I am one of the lucky ones who had a safe, dry home but my heart aches to those who have lost everything. You need to know that the sun is shining brillantly this morning and once the water recedes Calgarians and Southern Albertans will be out in full force cleaning up. Give us a few days and we will be open for business again.
