In a sign the humanitarian crisis along the U.S. Gulf Coast may have finally begun to stabilize, a Canadian icebreaker was told Wednesday not to unload its entire cargo of relief supplies.
For the time being, the Sir William Alexander will hold on to some foodstuffs, as well as hundreds of tents and cots that had been destined for refugees, whose belongings were completely wiped out by hurricane Katrina.
The foodstuffs contain Canadian beef and legally could not be imported, said Lieut. Marie-Claude Gagne, aboard HMCS Athabaskan, the Canadian flagship.
"The tents, nobody needs it," she (Marie-Claude Gagne) said.
"They don't require emergency shelter anymore."
U.S. authorities have begun erecting a number of temporary tent communities and have plans to build entire mobile-home cities where evacuees have been told they could spend as long as five years waiting to go home.

This is model behavior in proving your point. Keep up the good work.
