There are also arson reports coming from Nova Scotia and Quebec. True to form, the press is downplaying arson connection to wildfires.
I recently took a detailed look at the statistics related to wildfires in Canada, as well as reviewed assertions that poor land management practices have contributed to the wildfires now burning through several provinces.
The data just doesn’t support the climate change/global warming hysteria that the mainstream press continues to claim is the reason for these blazes. Now some Canadian political leaders are looking at arson as the potential source of some of the fires.
Alberta’s Premier Danielle Smith says the government is bringing in arson investigators from outside the province to trace the cause of the unprecedented wildfires in her province. Smith sidesteps the pseudoscience offered by the reporter who interviewed her recently on the subject.
In an interview with Real Talk Ryan Jespersen, he asked Smith how she reconciles her government’s energy policies with the fact experts have linked this year’s extreme fire season to climate change.
Smith responded that she’s concerned about arson when it comes to about 175 wildfires in Alberta with no known cause and said the province would bring in the additional investigators.
Jespersen noted, however, that the hot and dry conditions that allow fires to grow are part of a changing climate.
Smith then said Alberta needs to do a better job as government to build fireguards around communities.
Smith is acknowledging the real science: Wildfires are cyclical and better management practices would lead to prevention or earlier containment.
Meanwhile, in Nova Scotia, three separate cases of arson are under investigation amid the wildfire crisis. Fortunately, the blazes were contained before they went out of control.
In Pictou County, the Mounties are investigating three separate arson incidents in the area. Pictou County is roughly 120 km north of Halifax.
On Friday, a commercial structure fire, located on Highway 4 in Alma, was extinguished by local volunteer firefighters. A second fire was reported around an hour later on Granton Abercrombie Road in Granton.
The Mounties said the incident was caused by a green bin being lit on fire at the side of the road.
Luckily, local firefighters were able to put out the fire. Around 20 minutes later another fire was reported on Mount William Road in Mount William.
Again the Mounties said recycling bags at the side of the road were set on fire.
The Mounties managed to put the fire out.
“Initial investigation has determined that all three fires were the result of arson,” the RCMP in Nova Scotia
One fire in Quebec is also under investigation for arson.
The Toronto Sun has learned Quebec police are investigating the possibility that the smoke creating poor air quality in southern Ontario and making downtown skylines disappear may have been the result of arson.
“There is an investigation because the cause is suspect,” said Surtee de Quebec media officer Hugues Beaulieu.
…The actual cause is yet to be determined. We do know, however, that previous forest fires in places like Fort McMuray or in Nova Scotia are suspected to be caused by humans.
True to form as disinformation propagandists, the elite media accuses politicians who aren’t buying the climate change narrative of “downplaying” the pseudoscience.
Other conservative politicians have also tried to downplay the link between climate change and the hundreds of wildfires burning across Canada, which led to air quality alerts in U.S. cities such as New York and Washington, D.C. this week.
On Wednesday, Ontario Premier Doug Ford suggested the issue was being politicized when he was asked by the opposition parties to go on the record to connect this year’s fire season to climate change.
Maxime Bernier, leader of the People’s Party, accused Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of lying on social media after Trudeau tweeted that Canada is seeing more fires due to climate change.
I would argue the media is downplaying the arson connection.
The climate cultists have no problem destroying iconic art and architecture. Why should they stop there?
Bravo to all of the Canadian representatives who are using real science to protect their citizens and the Canadian forests.DONATE
