Today is the one year anniversary of the earthquake that shook and shocked Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
Canada has considered Haiti to be an important humanitarian project, and yet there is still a long way to go before the Haitian people can comfortably put the tragedy behind them.

Take a minute to remember the disaster, and to recognize how lucky we are that few of us have ever been personally affected by such natural disasters.
