Efforts to secure more firefighting resources welcomed by Opposition

 

VICTORIA (August 13, 2018) – The BC Liberals are pleased to see the provincial government reaching out to Ottawa for assistance with firefighting efforts.

“I commend the provincial government for seeking out additional resources to protect residents, their properties and their livelihoods,” said Andrew Wilkinson, Leader of the Official Opposition.

“The Official Opposition acknowledges the great work of firefighters, emergency responders, local agencies and First Nations during this challenging wildfire season, and we will continue to work constructively to support your efforts,” said John Rustad, Critic for Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development.

“As most of the residents affected by these fires are represented by BC Liberal MLAs, we know they will keep working tirelessly to bring their constituents timely information and any relief that they can.”
