BC Wildfires costs: No duo Photo Ops for Premier Christy Clark or Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (Gone Surfboarding)

Last Summer Prime Minister Stephen Harper visited British Columbia to talk shop politics with Christy Clark, and pose for their multiple fire brigade photo ops.  Wasn't there a Federal election just around the corner in October?   The Conservative Party of Canada should have paid for that photo op.

Does Mr. Harper still wear his bullet proof vest from Afghanistan?

Kelowna Now photo


This year, there was little to do on the firefighting front in British Columbia.  No photo ops for Premier Christy Clark.  Prime Minister Justin Trudeau went surfboarding on the west coast, no offer for the Premier to hitch a ride.


Wildfire Averages    2015 ---  280,605 Hectares @ $277.0 Millions;  1,858 incidences (fires)

2016        264     $  98.55 Million

99,837.36  Hectares for 2016 @ 98.55 Millions (Guestimate)

2015     $178.45 Million left over, if the Finance Minister allocated the same kind of funding as 2014.

2014 ......    1,481

Did BC Finance Minster Mike de Jong balance his budget coffers by dipping into the wildfires pots of funding?
