Typhoon Hagibis: Canadian rugby players help clean-up operation in Japan

After Canada’s final game of the Rugby World Cup was cancelled due to the damage caused by Typhoon Hagibis, the players took to the streets to lend a helping hand in the clean-up operation. The Canada players were seen shovelling mud, carrying furniture and debris after the storm passed through on Sunday. Typhoon Hagibis has left at least 23 people dead and cut power to almost half a million homes across the country.

    This is a nice change from foreigners usually trashing Japan whenever they go there.
    I say this as a European usually ashamed of my countrymen's behavior in Japan (and Asia).

    Canadians are nice. But Canadian rugby players are on another level nice.

    Jokes aside, thank you all for the volunteer. It must be hard for you guys not being able to play a game. I'm sure it was a HUGE help considering the damage and all heavy mud they needed to clean up.
