Canada to send water bombers to help fight Amazon fires

Canadian PM Justin Trudeau said in a press conference Monday that the country will commit $15 million to fighting the forest fires in the Amazon rainforest. Trudeau’s announcement follows Minister Chrystia Freeland having spoken to her counterpart in Brazil to offer Canada’s assistance in fighting the forest fires. Trudeau confirmed that in addition to the funding, Canada would send water bombers.

A international virtue signal by Canada's number one soy boy. I'm sure that the farmers will appreciate the effort... maybe they can do some targeted watering of crops🤔🤓

Trudeau never fails to show what an uninformed pansy he is. Canada is really losing footing globally.

I got a squad of waterbombers down the street. They're quite accurate and have a good throwing arm for 9 year olds.

Haha, oh damn. Imagine being some impoverished Brazilian farmer burning some fallow land in preperation for planting when a bomber with the maple leaf and blasting the Canadian national anthem flies over and puts out the fire to save the weeds.

hey they can actually physically accomplish something real, I'm ok with it. usually they just try to pass carbon taxes to get rich on or just run scams. less scams more real action. let's see if the can put out even one fire, from them that is impressive.
