You probably all know that Canada sent firefighters and Red Cross workers and later construction people to NY to help out. But did you know that when the order was given for all flights to be grounded in North America, many US flights landed one after the other in the Gander International Airport in Labrador - the part of Newfoundland on the mainland. This is a very isolated spot. 6700 passengers & crew from 38 large airplanes landed one after the other, packed like sardines on the tarmac. 6700 is about the population of the town. But the Newfies are a wonderful kind hearted people and they stepped up to the plate, making food and whatever else was needed. The biggest shortage was accomodations. Again without hesitation they took the passengers into their homes, treating them like visiting relatives as only those generous people can. They were treated so well that some passengers have gone back to Gander on this 10th ann. to visit their hosts and were greeted like long lost family members. One man said they were awestruck that these people would take perfect strangers into their homes.
