Thank you so much for that article you wrote on my neighbour (the guy in the bus). The ugly comments in the online edition are totally unwarranted. Funny how, when I suggested they go meet the guy (under the screen name “Thomus”), the ugly comments abruptly ended. It’s like they all walked away with their tails between their legs after all that bantering on without an inkling of knowing or understanding.

You should be delighted to know that so much has turned for him since the article was published, and Whitehorse does flow with kindness and understanding.

People have come by to drop off firewood and dog/puppy food and taken him out for a day of work. One group drove all the way from Haines Junction to bring a trunkload of wood. Even better, he’ll be starting to realize his dream in a more permanent home Ð a cabin out by Carcross turnoff.

He’s very thankful Ð I just wanted you to know that, if you haven’t heard already.
