Thanks Don, we are grateful here too for the assistance. Many of us also wish our government had taken the advice given by fire chiefs some time ago to lease your Canadian fire-fighting aircraft during your off-season. But like much of the fire chiefs' advice, it was ignored.Up here in Canada, part of the country is having flood, rain, and snow problems, but another part of the country has been having fire problems, but nowhere near as bad as yours. I’d pick snow and floods over fires any day of the year.
We Canadians were grateful for the Aussies that came up here to fight the Fort McMurray fires, and we have sent a few crews down to your fires. Our hearts feel for you.
