MIS­SIS­SAUGA, Ont. — Kaitlyn Weaver’s child­hood home has been de­stroyed by trop­i­cal storm Har­vey.

But the 28-year-old ice dancer, who grew up in Hous­ton be­fore be­com­ing a Cana­dian cit­i­zen in 2009, prefers to think of the pos­i­tive sto­ries of hu­man gen­eros­ity that have emerged from the dev­as­ta­tion in Texas.

“What is in­cred­i­ble to me is what has sur­faced out of this tragic en­vi­ron­ment is the kind­ness and com­pas­sion of hu­man be­ings, in a time that’s so ter­ri­ble,” Weaver said. She grew up in Bri­ar­for­est, a Hous­ton neigh­bour­hood now un­der sev­eral feet of wa­ter.
