I don't know how people rebuild after such devastation. And what's worse these fires happen every year.
The pictures of Fort Mcmurray looks like a Nuke has hit it.
We Canadians have raised 54 million so far, & truckers are carrying donated goods to Alberta right now.
And I read that for every Dollar raised by the public for the Canadian Red Cross the Government will match it.
Yes, both the provincial, & the federal governments.
I wonder how much this is related to climate change.
I have Canadian friends, other than you, who are worried about the fire.
We have sent trades people to the US, groups of firefighters, including a firefighter cousin of my husband who went to NY with a contingent of others after 9/11, many of us personally donate to disaster relief, including myself. It is the human thing to do.
I think Russia, Mexico and the US offered there help but it wasn't needed
I did hear that, but the thing that struck us was.....Russia?......like how many strings would be attached to that offer?.......especially after Mr. Trudeau told Putin off almost the minute he was elected! I don't think we want to be in the position of ''owing'' anything.
In this case I think the offer was genuine they have great expertise in forest fires, they have the same type of country Canada has.
I realize that, but who would trust Putin?
On that I agree with you Mrs B.
Thanks, Davy. He has done nothing to earn any trust whatsoever, no matter how dire our trouble.
