WOW Moment: Calgarians helping Calgarians

"One thing that comes to mind is when the Elbow River rose. . . . I lived along the river with my wife, (theatre performer) Denise Clarke.

The fire department came and told everyone to get out of their houses. The water filled the basement right to the rafters.

We had a friend come over the next night when we were pumping out the basement and she put out the call (for more help.) The next day 30 people showed up ... It was an extraordinarily moving experience."
