Wildfires in Canada: State of emergency leads to mass evacuation

  • Canada has already evacuated around 40,000 people in British Columbia and also deployed military aircraft in order to combat the wildfires that have thrown the entire province in a state of emergency. Australia has also decided to help Canada out by sending a team of 50 firefighters. Ralph Goodale, the Federal Public Safety Minister of Canada, has also said that the province located in western Canada has already asked the federal government on two occasions for military assistance. It is expected that the fires would only get worse.
