The Big Cleanup - volunteers head to St-Jean
Among the volunteers is a group of staff and students from McGill and Concordia Universities.
Lauren Mandelker (left, centre) is a student at Concordia, where she's also part of an ongoing Emergency Response Team.
Dave called her up just before she boarded the bus to St-Jean-sur-Richelieu. Lauren also passed the phone to fellow volunteer Yulia Kondratenko, who teaches classics and modern languages at Concordia.
