Subject: RE: BS: Irony of Tsunami Relief
Just heard a Canadian doctor in Sri Lanka say that the clinic where he is working was not there before the donations. They are giving medical attention to many, mostly children. He said that the donations are being put to good use.

Paul Martin (Canadian PM) toured Sri Lanka and said the real tragedy is not what can be seen.

I think he was referring to the grief and trauma of the people. All we can do is give as much as we can and hope for the best.

Regardless of politics, I am very proud of the amount of money the Canadian people have donated from their own pockets. I am also proud of a government that matches every dime of personal donations. Compassionate people with a compassionate government
