What it means to be Canadian. My perverse take ....... For some deep reason - find this so depressing! No not the horrible fires. These are to be expected, from time to time, and that is what preparation and insurance is for. That's why we have water tanks, and a week or two of food. No what is supremely depressing that any government thinks that this we know best and "you will comply sheeple" attitude, and might I say with force of law, is an okay attitude. This is just wrong! Wake up people... If your state, has the legal force to declare a state of emergency, we the people need to limit what that means, and fast! You do not need your government to "help". That kind of dependency is just stupid. Self relaiance and grit is all American --- a government mandated refugee? ... I will not comply!
