Friend Ziaur Rahman Zia (Civil 90, Kuwait) called from Edmonton. Edmonton is a 15-hour overnight drive from Yellowknife, the capital of the Northwest Territories. The administration and security of the entire city is now in the hands of the Canadian Army.

The wildfire is coming. Millions of acres of forest land burned to ashes! These days, Zia was directly involved in the government administration of the Northwest Territory. The team lead of the design and construction department of the Ministry of Roads there. All public and private people including Zia jumped together to save people.

But the territory government does not have enough technology and experience to prevent wildfire. So the army took responsibility. All citizens except the army have been ordered to leave the territory. Soldiers first built fireproof separators around the capital, Yellowknife, to protect homes from the wildfire. People are being moved to other provinces under military supervision by civilian and military aircraft. They are mainly being taken to Edmonton, Vancouver and Calgary. Those who can drive themselves and go elsewhere.

At the moment, the air quality of the city is very bad. Breathing responsibility. Hearing the voices of Zia and Bhabhi, I understood that they are all sick. There are about thirty Bangladeshi families in Yellowknife. Most are engineers and government officials. All are victims of severe suffering.

Our collective prayers for all.

Brampton, Canada
