Are we really that kind of people in Burns Lake refusing to help refugees into our small town.
I cant believe we would do this. We are bigger than this, we were there when it came time to help the boat people and today we have no heart what changed us? Poverty is it? What did it? We are a have community and always there when there is someone in need.
In our community, well we don’t know this family that may be coming to Burns Lake but I know for sure they want a home, friendship and everything that we all have and they have the same needs let’s get behind a fund raising program to see if we can find a house, furniture and all that is required to get a family in Burns Lake and a group of people who would like to help get the fund raising and a committee off the ground these people are looking for love I’m sure we can provide this will you please help I’m going to the credit union and start a fund raising account also at the Royal Bank in case you don’t know who I am, I was mayor of Burns Lake for six years and stayed out of community activities.
I’m a member of the Burns Lake Knights of Columbus as well there motto is helping people in need. If you or anyone can help or wants to get involved please call me at 250 692 7417 ask for me Paul H. Jean.
