Christy Clark: Contract the Martin Mars Waterbombers for 5 more years to protect BC
WE HIT 1000 in only 19 hours!! The media is catching hold!
Jul 18, 2014 — We are going to be hearing from Coulson's apparently in the media. Our local PEAK radio is on the case as is CKNW in Vancouver. CBC, CTV and CHEK have been informed.
Let's be honest here, this is probably the last chance we have. These are the best water bombers in the world. One is already ready to go to a museum. The other has barely been touched this year and might not be able to fight fires until next year.
But make no mistake, fire seasons like this year are going to become more common, not less. We will need everything we can to fight the fires that come. It will be all hands on deck and these planes are the cheapest way to get the most water on the fires that we know.
Keep it up people. Thank you so much. This has been a crazy day and we're just getting revved up. We still haven't heard anything from Government.
Keep up the pressure, consider phoning or emailing your MLA or City Councillor or anyone you can anywhere in BC.
Thank you. Not just from me, but over 1000 of your closest friends!
