BC COMMUNITIES RECOVERING FROM WILDFIRES

   Vancouver Sun:  Communities are still recovering from British Columbia’s worst wildfire season on record, one year after a fateful two-day period in July 2017 that sparked more than 100 fires and prompted the province to declare a state of emergency.
   The province commissioned an independent review of its response to fires and flooding last year. The report published in May made 108 recommendations and called for an overhaul of disaster response practices, and the government said it would produce a comprehensive plan this fall.
   No one died in the flames, but people in B.C.’s Interior are still struggling to rebuild their homes, restore the environment and revive local economies.
