While BC and Ontario Europe are in the news because of wildfires they
are also burning across the territories.
The Poison Lake fire has crossed the Frances River and is moving east
toward the highway. It’s grown to 17,000 hectares since it began in

No one really cares. There are only about 38,000 people in the entire

They could always maintain their forestry and have large fire breaks along
roads and around towns.
But that wouldn't occur to the Gordos of the world
