I was stopped behind a small white car in the left hand turn lane at McGill and Summit at 9:45 a.m. on Monday (March 22, 2021).
The driver, a young woman, jumps out of her vehicle and runs in front of all the waiting vehicles at the intersection.
She stoops down at the curbside and helps one of our ‘ homeless ‘ people who had fallen off the curb and into the street.
She kept all the cars at bay until she got him on his feet, picked up his ‘ treasures’ that had fallen and helped him back to the sidewalk.
So many people would have just driven around him … or honked, swore or worse.
And yet she stopped three lanes of traffic herself to help him.
Then she ran back to her vehicle – waited with all of us for the next green light and off she went, likely to the University.
There is the real spirit of Kamloops people caring.
