Thanks for reporting on the incredible story of the discovery of Lucy Johnson in the Yukon (“Surrey mom found after going missing 52 years ago,” The Leader, July 18).
I read with dismay that Linda Evans cannot afford to fly to see her mother after a 50-year absence.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if an airline were able to donate a free ticket for Linda to go fairly soon? WestJet, Air Canada and Air North are the three airlines that offer flights from Vancouver to Whitehorse. The return ticket prices range from $380 to over $1,000.
If anyone knows someone in any of these airlines that would be willing to go to bat for Linda to get a free flight that would be great.
The airline could help Linda in this “feel good” story and it would be excellent “free” advertising for the company.
If an airline doesn’t help, then we could pool together donations for Linda. I, for one, would chip in.
