Action Alert: Fort McMurray

We need your help now!!! The community of Fort McMurray is in the process of commissioning a 16 foot stall statue to honour the first responders of last year’s fire. There are four first responders depicted in the statue. One is female, which is positive, but she is holding a child’s hand while the man beside her is saving a damsel in distress (with very few clothes on). We can change this message!! Maybe the female responder could be saving a man, or the woman being saved could be fully dressed! Contact the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo and let them know your thoughts. They are in the process of getting feedback on the design so now is the time before this 16 foot statue is built! Here is an article about the proposed statue, with a photograph.
