In fact, Samuel Girard’s mother returned from an evening of bingo and asked her partner if they could welcome a disaster-stricken family into their home. Samuel Girard’s father, Tony, agreed, but they had to ask Samuel, the owner, for permission.
Naturally, Samuel Girard gladly accepted. According to his mother, he’s a very generous person.
As the refugee family’s father, Hugo Tremblay, explains, the first option was to live in a tent. Comparing the two options, the Girards’ cozy waterfront property becomes an immense luxury.
The residents of Chibougamau had to evacuate because of the forest fires, and had to find new temporary accommodation, otherwise they would have to go to the Centre sportif Benoît-Lévesque, an arena that welcomed refugees.
Even if it wasn’t his idea in the first place, it’s a very nice gesture by Samuel Girard. It proves once again why he’s such an appreciated player in the NHL.

The bad news keeps piling up for the @OlympiquesGAT. Olivier Nadeau’s return to action 4 days earlier than expected forces the club to give a 1st choice back to the @Cataractes_Shaw. A dispute that will go to court. @LHJMQ https://t.co/CyHg5oQT3k

Could the #Habs make it three straight first-round picks from Slovakia this year? With Dalibor Dvorsky likely to be on the board at fifth overall, it’s certainly a possibility: https://t.co/FUfcVljNoK
