Canada to deploy country's armed forces to help extinguish fires in Quebec

Ottawa, June 4 (UNI) Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Sunday that the government would send the country’s armed forces to support the Quebec authorities in extinguishing wildfires in the province.
"We’re going to deploy the Canadian armed forces’ members to help support Quebec’s response to the ongoing wildfires and to provide firefighting resources," Trudeau said on Twitter.
