Following the moratorium in 1992 there were a great many people displaced and in search of work. Jim was in Law School at the time in Windsor Ontario and he wanted to help. He wrote a letter to the editor in The Northern Pen offering a place to stay and a vehicle to use for a few weeks or more to anyone who had a decent chance at finding work . This gesture of goodwill was noticed by many and lead to the following interview on CBC Radio.
In the end Jim provided a place to stay and a truck to drive to a couple of people who were doing their best to get back into the job market. A simple but genuine effort to make a difference one person at a time. Yet another reason Jim is a great leader and would make a great Premier.
