Norm MacDonald- B.C. Budget on Forest Fire Fighting
While any government has to guess at a few things when looking ahead a year, there is one area constantly under-projected: Forest fire fighting. This year's budget projects $63 million will be needed to fight fires, even though it has actually cost double that or more in three of the last four years. In 2009 it cost almost $400 million to fight all of B.C.'s forest fires. Shelley reaches forestry critic and Revelstoke MLA Norm McDonald on the line now for more.
