Letter: Thank you for the help

I was in a car wreck on the Crowsnest near Eholt Summit, writes Greg Veregin, and I'd like to thank all the people who stopped.

I was in a car wreck on the Crowsnest near Eholt Summit on a recent Monday afternoon.

I’d like to thank all the people who stopped to check if they could help, and to all those who called first responders when they gained cell reception.

I also want to thank all the first responders—RCMP, paramedics, Mid-Nytes Towing, and the fire department—for showing up and helping out.

It was an overwhelming experience, and I really appreciated the kindness shown to me by complete strangers. I’d never been to the Kootenays before, and it was great to experience such hospitality.

Also, a final thank you the staff at the Ramada for checking on me and offering to help during my brief stay in town.

Best regards,

– Greg Veregin, Burnaby, B.C.
