BC Wildfires: How to Help

I grew up on a farm. Cows, horses, ducks and chickens - The real deal. Our farm was at the foot of a mountain and the threat of fire in the summer was always on our minds.

 

As a Client Care Representative, I’m often one of the first points of contact for customers and it breaks my heart to hear about the wildfires in BC affecting so many people and as an animal lover, I can’t imagine how tough it might be to find help with your pets and farm animals.

 

I want to help. I’ve compiled a list of resources to assist those affected - both human and critter alike.

Telus has the worst customer service of any modern day cellular company.  Their customer service team is not able to fix my problem. 

I have been without my business cell phone number for one week. 7 days without a single business call based on customer one  mistake of operator error. No apology. No

resolve. Just excuses.
