Justin Trudeau had recently said he’d planned to go to Alberta, but that the time wasn’t right.

It is now it seems as the prime minister announced in the Commons he’ll go to fire-ravaged Fort McMurray at the end of the week.  Trudeau also thanked firefighters for all their hard work in battling the inferno that forced over 80,000 from their homes in the northern Alberta city.
He also thanked Canadians for their donations to the Red Cross and other relief groups.
The Red Cross has so far collected $60-million from individuals and corporations.

It does not include money coming from the federal and Alberta governments, which will match donations from individuals.
The total so far has topped the $43.3-million Canadians gave during the 2013 Alberta floods and the $14.8-million donated after the rail disaster in Lac Megantic, Quebec.
