Yes, they are sending more people in to assist with exhausted RCMP members. And yes, 10 days too late, but it's not like the military hasn't been here assisting.

The Canadian Armed Forces has already sent a number of personnel, helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft to the province to help in the firefight.

Good to know.

And I see that dastardly Horgan is working well with what the Liberals started with. What with promising to "do whatever it takes" and extending budgets towards fire fighting. :up:

Why did they drive tanks all the way out? What they going to use them for? starting fires to do backburns?

I'm not military expert, but these things look like tanks. Picture taken in Williams Lake today.

I too am not a military expert, but concur with your conclusion.

You're right! I missed that! It sure would make looters sit up and take notice. [icon_lol2.gif]

I have been away for several days, no internet connection.

Although late in arriving, am glad to see some help in this catastrophic time coming from the feds.

Does anyone know how many personnel arrived and are they still there?

People i have chatted with seem to think they have returned home.

I am a "military expert" (well maybe not an expert but career military at least, close enough for CNet) and I can say that is NOT a tank.

This is a tank:

Meh, tank, coyote, penis -- they all seem the same to me.
