Canada flys stranded fish to safety

This is what we're talking about when we talk about "wealthy nations."

Where else would a few hundred trout and whitefish be evacuated by helicopter?

Not that Canada is without helicopter challenges. The WW II era Sea King has been the subject of an on-again off-again replacement campaign for 30 years. It remains the backbone of Canada's military helicopter fleet.

Budget considerations, we are told, which really means politics.

In Ontario, the Ornge medi-vac helicopter fleet can't be counted on to collect accident victims in a timely manner.

Budget considerations...

But thank God we can rescue some stranded fish!
