Roman comments that Canada received 1,800 people from different countries who went to support this mission for the country and the planet.

Roman concluded that the worst record recorded by Canada was in 1995 with an area of ​​7,105,000 hectares and summer begins tomorrow, which is where these accidents occur the most, and therefore the forecasts are not satisfactory at all.
