Well, imagine someone giving you $10 million dollars to clean up garbage in the streets. The first thing you do is determine what needs to be done, next what you need to get it done, and next how many people you will need to get it done. Develop a scope and a plan of execution, buy the trucks, and hire the people. Follow this plan and you will see progress. Canada throws money at other organizations, not Haiti. When they fail, Canada blames Haiti. Haitians going over to the DR by the thousands to cut cane for $5 a day. The Haitian wants to work and is not lazy. Why not pay him $5 a day to clean his own country? The money is tied up in red tape.

Helping Haiti is like helping Al Qaeda.
