In one of Canada’s worst wildfire seasons, Canadian soldiers work hard to fight against the flames in our favourite photo of the week.
As part of Operation LENTUS, military personnel are shown here conducting wildfire control operations North of Sept-Îles, Québec, on June 11th. Cpl. Maxime Lacasseshot the image.
Soldiers deployed to Quebec after the province asked for support from the Canadian Armed Forces and the Department of National Defence on June 2. Currently, there are more than 300 CAF members deployed to the region.
