Yeah the fires were insane this year. We had 10,000 evacuees in town during the summer. My company supplies vehicles to the Red Cross, they will need them into the spring(!) as they are still doing “outreach”.
I moved up from Kamloops 3.5 years ago. I wouldn’t have been able to buy a house there so Prince George is looking all right, and hey we are out of the top ten of Canada’s most dangerous cities as judged by MacLeans magazine(we are now #11).
