My friend Tanya Wilson saved a Mother and her son on Sunday, July 22nd 2018. Toronto had a mass shooting that ended up with 13 people shot and 2 people dead. She came outside of her Tattoo shop as she could hear gun shots going off outside and as she did a Mother and her son came running into her shop screaming for help saying they had been shot. She brought them into her shop and locked her doors behind them and helped treat them until police and paramedics arrived on scene.
Well now because she was a hero and good samaritan. She saved these 2 peoples lives, her shop isn't allowed to open back up for business until she has cime scene cleaners come into her shop and clean it as it needs to have a high level of sterilization done to it due to the fact that there are mass amounts of blood all through her shop and because her shop isn't like a general business, it's a tattoo shop.
The unfortunate thing about this event is that ontop of her opening her doors to help save these 2 peoples lives the Metro Toronto Police are saying that she must foot the bill for this service as they can not do anything financially to help her.
I have seen the shop personally and I'm at a loss for words. I've been with her the since the incident happened and she is not mentally and emtionally well. I can only imagine what she went through. The donation amount isn't even close to the loss of money that she will lose until her shop reopens again, but I just think she shouldn't have to pay all of it if any period after doing such a great deed.
Please help out my friend.
