How is it possible for a fire department to refuse to answer a fire call because the community at the other end of the line has an outstanding bill?
Going by early news reports, that's what happened this week at Loon Lake, Saskatchewan.
Loon Lake Fire Chief Larry Heon is quoted as saying that the nearby Makwa-
Sahgaiehcan First Nation had been warned about paying their bills.
I sincerely hope he was misquoted.
You let two kids burn to death because the grown-ups in their community haven't paid their bills?
How is such a thing even possible in the Canada I live in?
