OTTAWA, July 9, 2015 – The Honourable Steven Blaney, Canada's Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, made the following statement today following a visit to the areas of Saskatchewan being impacted by wildfires, and meeting with impacted citizens.

“My thoughts are with those families and communities affected by the recent wildfires. The devastation that I have witnessed here is heartbreaking, but I am uplifted by the spirit of community and resilience they have demonstrated.

Our Government will continue to help Canadians recover from natural disasters.
