What about Third World conditions in Canada?

Dear editor,

It is heartwarming to see folks donating to the typhoon disaster in the Philippines, and raising funds for medical supplies in Syrian refugee camps.

Blessings on these kind and compassionate people.

In the meantime, in Attawapiskat, Ont., people are living in Third World conditions in substandard housing, and suffering through power outages and fires that prompted recent issuing of a state of emergency and evacuations.

Just sayin.’

J. Gould,

Courtenay
