This past week, we’ve found ourselves pulled into the drama in Fort McMurray, just four hours north of our studios. The devastating wildfire has forced 80,000 evacuees to flee the city, and tens of thousands are now here in Edmonton.
Today, we’re bringing you stories collected by fellow volunteers at CJSR Radio in the days immediately after the evacuation. We’ll hear first-hand accounts of people who had to flee, and meet people who have opened up their hearts and wallets to help. And listen through for some analysis on the climate change context from a University of Alberta wildfire expert.
