Using a Teaspoon on your Campfire

While I would like to commend the pilot of the helicopter and the grounds crew both local and from other parts - the government should have been able to get a water bomber in.

It is now forest fire season and the wind and people on the ground not forestry assets are keeping the town of Seal Cove safe - for now.

My understanding is there was a problem with the bomber in Deer Lake today and that a bomber could not leave Gander yesterday in fog.

The local fire brigade is tremendous and keeping an eye on everything.

Please look at the pictures below:

Now we need to know - is there a problem with our forest protection assets?
