The people who had the pink pieces of paper were pleased. The people who did not were not.

Most of the people evacuated Sunday from the Downsview neighbourhood near Sunrise Propane were permitted to return to their homes by Monday night.

Passes distributed yesterday at Ancaster Public School allowed dozens more to bypass the police checkpoints on their streets.

Upon their returns, they checked for damage several of them reported none or little and delighted in simple pleasures: their own beds, their own bathrooms, their own comfortable clothes.
