Solidarity blitz to collect sandbags

Close to 225 volunteers responded to the call for the Solidarity blitz on June 1 and 2, 2019. Volunteers and close to two hundred municipal employees collected tens of thousands of bags.

In addition to the blitz, there were several private and neighbourhood outreach initiatives. Many flood victims had already placed their bags along the road for easy pick-up over the weekend. In the end, thanks to everyone's efforts, thousands of additional sandbags were cleared away.
