Sask Forest Fire

Saskatchewan Public Safety Agency (SPSA) provided an Active Wildfire Map that shows 15 wildfires burning in the province on Sunday.

La Loche Forest Fire

Three of these fires are not contained, which means they are still spreading.

a look at the map with the fires indidcated is interesting. Does anyone have an explanation for the fire areas? (other than possible arson)....


It’s way too early in the year for this. We still had snow on the ground a couple of weeks ago. Arson.

Looks like the arsonists are now busy in SK.

Yes, I agree there is a very sick group of foreign funded activist that want the country to burn. Just remember, the source of the Fort McMurray fire was never determined. However, they know it was not lighting. Also,

the NDP made a big cut in the fire fighting budget just before the fire. Hmmm. Nothing to see here.


So the climate activists have moved into SK now.
