I would like to thank each and every firefighter who has helped battle our latest fire.
I was with the initial attack team with Parks Canada, looking after the five federal parks from Banff to Revelstoke.
I know firsthand what these people are going through as they do their job and it is hard, hot, heavy and scary work. The smell of smoke gets right into the skin and it takes a person who really cares about the environment, but firstly his fellow man, to put himself in danger’s way.
I’m sure that a lot of people have said thanks, but now on behalf of all our citizens I would like to express our gratitude for the work they have done and work they continue to do.
Mike Dunbrook, Oliver
