Posted by on Sunday, January 29, 2017

New Brunswick Minister of Justice and Public Safety, Denis Landry, has asked the Government of Canada for emergency assistance from the Canadian Armed Forces to support the Province of New Brunswick.

There are states of emergency in the region.

Provincial and municipal assets have been deployed to address the situation after an ice storm earlier this week.
There have been two fatalities.

The provincial request identifies a need for a military reconnaissance team to be deployed to the damaged areas across New Brunswick to support emergency response efforts already underway.
