Investigation by Royal Commission into 2018 BC Wildfires and response.

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

We NEED major change in the way we fight fires. This is the second year of untold wildfire disasters in our province, how many times do the we have to burn before the government learns the lesson! We cannot keep going through catastrophic fire seasons like this any more.

We need a Investigation by Royal commission to ensure the government learns the lessons we all learned.  This only Scratches the surface!
