I heard there was a rush on stores, but as I said on my facebook, there's plenty of food. I was there Saturday morning, right after the crest, and there were no line-ups, no panicked people, plenty of food on the shelves, and hardly any sign that something had happened. Some of the junk food was scant, but that was all.
It's funny; Canadians have a sort of idea that whatever the problem, the government will ultimately step in and fix it. I'm sure even if we were actually in trouble, the food stores would still be accessible. If food ran out, the government would supply it (that's the thought process, any way). No question. Whether this is true or not is debatable, but all the conversations I've had, near and far from the actual site of the flood, has been calm, mild concern. Even the press has trouble making it seem horrible, and you'll notice a lack of crying, freaked out people.
Whatever happens, I'll be at home tomorrow, trying to make arrangements perhaps to take off some time or have access to the restricted in-house system I usually work with. I do expect to still restart my online campaign - I may even have more time than I expected.
