Is it just me or does anyone else kinda shake their head with that pissy amount? $150,000.00 ? REALLY ? That's all it cost with all those planes, police, fire dept personnel not just for ONE day but many afterwards. I cannot for the life of me figure out where they got that figure.

Surely to god it HAD TO have cost more easily in man hours alone.

Well one thing I know - taxes in Lake Country any time soon ain't going down !

Seems low, I suspect certain amounts were already included,,or in other words not costed to the fire event such as already on duty RCMP. That's a assumption on my part. It would be interesting to have a break down on how the costs are allocated.

I suspect that the cost of the Provinces part was not included in that, only the direct cost to Lake Country for their part in fighting the fire.
I might look normal but believe me, I talk to animals and wait for them to reply.
