For me the insurance thing is not so black and white, but yeah if you can afford a sled and a quad, and you've got a family, you better pay for insurance or you are an absolute moron.

Why are you friends with douchebags?

Also this may make me sound like an asshole but I have zero interest in helping people who chose to go without insurance (after the dust has settled and people are making insurance claims), they made that choice and I think they should deal with the consequences rather than have other people cover their losses.
There is a big gap between rebuilding, albeit with insurance or not, and 70,000 people now without homes, work, and more importantly food. Between waiting for insurance estimates etc, they will require to pay bills for phones, insurance on cars, food/shelter - and this is where the Red Cross helps in spades (food/shelter/medicine).

At one point (before they moved to Alberta), they weren't douchebags. Also, it's easier to ignore them than it is to deal with the aftermath of the heinous act of defriending them.

To be fair, they seldom post, so it's not really a big annoyance. I get to see their new homes, trucks, toys, vacations, etc. which is fine; better than the usual garbage posted on Facebook (spam, quizzes, click-bait, etc.). Whenever there's an election (or this), they're intolerable, though.

It just amazes me how much they changed since we were teenagers.

they live in multimillion dollar homes and drive lambos...why should Vancouverites need my monetary support?

I'm impressed at how orderly everyone was when the fire was up to the right of them.

Quick time lapse of the fire converging on the Fort Mac airport.





What's scary is that many people were forced to drive North of the city, towards the oil fields themselves. The problem is that the only way out from there is back through Fort McMurray. I know the fire isn't (currently) traveling North, but winds can change in an instant.

If that were to change, evacuation would happen by air. I've evacuated many reserves by air in Manitoba due to fires. It's a bit of a gong show, but everyone gets out (Pending there isn't 40,000 people up there).

I was surprised to see how long the motorcyclist stayed behind him. Many people on two wheels don't sit in traffic like that in perfect weather!

neither is Japan in 2011...nor New Orleans in 2005.

Sure no injuries/fatalities as a direct result reported yet, but natural disaster is natural disaster...any immediate support to help those displaced will likely be beneficial regardless of the population/victims' financial background.

Contributing is your choice and there's no pressure to do so but the rationale just seems flawed
