Fort St. John, BC – Bob Zimmer, Member of Parliament for Prince George-Peace River-Northern Rockies and Chair of the BC/Yukon Caucus made the following statement regarding the help that the province has been receiving for the wildfires across the interior of British Columbia.
“Thank you to our friends and neighbours in Fort McMurray, Alberta. A special thanks to Gerry and Mike Fortier who delivered supplies for many wildfire evacuees. It’s awesome to see their community pay it forward when they are still rebuilding their own.

“We are also grateful for the 415 out of province workers from across Canada who are helping the more than 2,895 BC workers fight these wildfires.
When a crisis occurs with our neighbours, it’s the Canadian way to help. It’s moments like these that make me even prouder to be a Canadian”
