There were amazing feature singles in the photo stories that we really wish had been included in this category!

Darling’s Island, NB, was had no access to mainland for over a week due to flooding. The island is connected by a small land bridge and has no stores or school. The island flooded in 2009 and the province provided boats for people to get off the island safely. This year the province did not supply boats for “liability reasons,” leaving residents to tread through the water themselves to get their children to school.
