Nice to hear some positive news for a change from all the bullshit goin’ on !!! …

Two RCMP officers and the owner of a retail store in Trail , B.C. helped make Christmas morning a little brighter for two young girls in foster care … The three men sought out and gave gifts to the two girls after they were sent to foster care late Christmas Eve … ‘ Between the three of them , they certainly went above and beyond to make sure Santa came for these two young children this Christmas ‘ said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Dan Moskaluk …

In a news release , RCMP said Const. Chris Elwood and Const. Mike Flewelling from Trail RCMP were called to check on the well-being of the two girls at a home on Christmas Eve … When the officers arrived , they realized they would have to send the girls away with a social worker to a foster home that night …  Knowing the girls wouldn’t have any gifts to open Christmas morning at their new home , they started looking for stores that were open and even searched for suitable gifts within their own homes … They were unsuccessful but ended up reaching the owner of a local Canadian Tire …  Moskaluk said the owner , Craig Latanville , opened his store to the officers and helped them find ‘ armfuls ‘of gifts … When they returned the next morning to pay for the gifts , RCMP says Lattanville told them it wasn’t necessary …

Moskaluk said the officer in charge of the detachment , Sgt. Darren Oelkethey , was ‘ touched ‘ by what he saw and wanted to release the information to publicly to thank Lattanville for his generosity … It was also a chance to illustrate the ‘ heart wrenching ‘ circumstances police sometimes face , Moskaluk said … ‘ You know , it shows we try and make the best of situations when we’re out there doing our work and that we’ve got big hearts as well ‘ …
