Trudeau Visits Fort McMurray

Posted by on Friday, May 13, 2016

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will visit fire-ravaged Fort McMurray today to see the devastation caused by the wildfire.

The Prime Minister will visit Fort McMurray and will meet with first responders this morning and at 3:15 MDT this afternoon he will hold a joint media availability with Alberta Premier Rachel Notley at the Provincial Operation Centre.

Trudeau has been both criticized and praised for his visit. Some argue that his visit is long overdue, while others say that he needed to wait and let first responders fight the blaze.

The wildfire forced 90,000 residents to flee their homes almost two weeks ago. Residents are still unsure when they will be allowed to return home.
