There are apparently some large forest fires raging in Quebec. So bad that the ballgame in Philly was postponed. What’s going on? Is this the first time there were fires in Canada? I’ve never heard of this kind of thing before. Even in Michigan they have been pumping out the fear porn: “worst air quality ever!” “Stay inside, avoid exposure!” So the air’s a little smoky, what’s the big deal? People are such pussies nowadays.

That's what I've been thinking. Canada sending all that smoke down our way? I thought they were nicer than that.

Of course the doomsday climate people will add that to their argument.

Another manufactured crisis much like Covid. The origins of Covid have come full circle back to the lab as the origin. In the case of the fires it's arson to push the BS climate change agenda.

I think the premiere of Nova Scotia has blamed it on campers/picnic people who didn't put out a fire properly and the fire smoldered and has caused this disaster.

I don't get how a fire hundreds of miles away can affect Atlanta which probably hasn't been this smoky since Sherman's army laid waste to the city core.

In Toronto the air smelt like burnt wood but I assumed it was a neighbor who cuts wood with power saws and from I remember of wood shop if you cut wood with power saws the scent is similar. I only learned of the smoke coming this far inland when I went to a weather website.

Well reportedly New Jersey is requiring masks for two weeks. You know, to flatten the curve.

But whether it was arson or camper carelessness, doesn’t this all boil down to forest mismanagement? Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but hasn’t Canada followed other leftist places like California and went away from using controlled burns? If so, that is creating these old forests that get out of control when an inevitable fire occurs.

The local haze reminds me of the old days of smog, I was longing for my '72 Buick Riviera.

I went outside this morning and assumed somebody was smoking cigarettes and then the smell lingered until the afternoon and figured it was the wildfire smoke again.

Yes I remember when Los Angeles was one big smoggy haze and the California governor was contemplating driving limits in the greater Los Angeles area.

I also remember Bob Barker giving away California emissions standard vehicles because of the LA smog...

Yeah I never really understood the whole forest fire deal. Supposedly we have nuclear weapons that can destroy the planet but we can’t put out a fire? Just go out put the damn thing out.

In the majority of these forest fires in America and Canada they catch many arsonists. Some are arrested while others are not. Think
about how the Agenda 2030 works. They want to force everyone into the cities packed in like a roach motel. They know alot of people
don't want to live there so how do you force them to go live there. Trains causing mass chemical spills, fires, etc. etc.

Today was quite hazy and smoky here, the worst day yet. Of course the TV and radio personalities and weathermen were begging people not to go outside and to wear a mask if they did. Everything has to be turned into high drama and a crisis-like atmosphere.

Canada and California both probably do a poor job of forestry management leaving them both open to this insanity.


Expecting Canada to get its act together? Not holding my breath on that one.
