I would like to welcome back all the residents from the Watch Lake and North Green Lake area that were evacuated during the Elephant Hill wildfire.
I want to say a big thank you to the Watch Lake and North Green Lake Firefighters, who stayed behind during the wildfires, as well as RCMP members, conservation officers and the army, for looking after the residents’ homes and properties in the area.
This summer was something that we will always remember and I hope will not repeat itself.
