  • Janitor great at his job

    WE received a huge shipment of new tables and desks for our class.

    Our school’s janitor, M. Stéfan, immediately started to work at assembling the furniture for us. He made sure we had them as soon as possible because he saw how excited we were!

    After they were set up, he checked on us many times to ask if we were comfortable and happy with the height and size.

    Thank you for your hard work with these tables. We appreciate you all year-round!

  • Kudos to flight crew for handling of crisis

    AIR Canada often receives bad press in the nation’s media. No doubt it is sometimes well deserved.

    However, I would like to share a recent experience that celebrates excellent work done by the crew on a recent Air Canada flight.

    My wife and I were flying on Flight 297 to Vancouver on March 30, and a passenger went into medical distress.

    The flight attendant in charge, Kevin, handled the incident with great professionalism and compassion. He promptly located a doctor and a nurse among the passengers and assisted them in stabilizing the ailing passenger, who thankfully arrived in Vancouver safely.

    Kevin and his fellow attendant then resumed full service after the crisis was averted. The doctor, nurse and attendants were treated to the applause of the passengers for their excellent work. The experience reminded all on board that flight crews do a lot more than serve pretzels and soft drinks.

  • Thoughtful gift for family that opted for home-schooling

    WE had to remove our kids from school because they had both been violently bullied and needed protection.

    A few days later, a mysterious gift package arrived at our door with Easter candies, school supplies, scented markers and a sweet, handwritten poem wishing the boys well in their new home-schooling journey.

    We have not been able to identify the giver of this thoughtful gift.

    Our hearts are touched by the kindness shown and by the encouragement in our decision.

  • Touched by compliment

    I wanted to share a story for your Random Acts of Kindness column.

    My little family and I were out to celebrate my son’s second birthday at Montana’s Cookhouse in St. Vital. While my little guy was not on his best behaviour, the folks around us were quite patient with his sudden volume changes and occasional crayon flinging.

    After we completed our meal, our waitress told us our bill had been taken care of by someone who wished to remain anonymous but said they thought we were doing a great job as parents and that it was nice to see the love we have for our son.

    I don’t know who you were, but I want you to know how much your act of generosity and kindness has touched us. We don’t always feel like we’re doing a good job as parents, so to get a compliment like that from someone we don’t know was so awesome, it moved me to tears. Thank you so much for making my son’s birthday extra-special and inspiring us to pay it forward. You really made our day.

    Thanks!
