Help Mackenzie

To the residents of Mackenzie, I support you all during this difficult time. 

For the life of me, I don't understand why the provincial government has not presented a real plan and action to help the residents of Mackenzie. The provincial government has to know the residents depend on these jobs that is a major sector of a small town. Tourism and services sector jobs will not be enough to pay for a roof over your head and to put food on the table for families.

Is the provincial government waiting for the town of Mackenzie to be abandoned before doing something? By then, it'll be way too late and then what would they say? How will they answer those two questions? Residents for the Town of Mackenzie had to leave because they couldn't survive in a small town with three major job sectors closed and shut down?

Hopefully it won't go that far and the residents of Mackenzie get the help that's needed to stay and survive in a town that they have known all of their lives or years or generations and hopefully will be in that small town for many more years ahead.
