GoFundMe Started to Recoup Canada’s Costs for Rafter Rescue [VIDEO]
The campaign was started by a Michigan man who didn't participate in the float down.
The city of Sarnia is claiming approximately $9,000 in costs after 1,500 drunken American rafters accidentally floated from the St. Clair River into Canada over the weekend. The costs are, according to the city, for "mobilizing an exhaustive rescue, elevate body temperatures and, of course, to transport them back stateside."
A Michigander has started a GoFundMe campaign to raise the money and pay back our neighbors.
Sarnia police, the Canadian Coast Guard, Canada Border Service Agency and Ontario Provincial Police all responded to the "wayward rafters." So far, the campaign has raised over $3,000.
Not a bad idea, eh?
