CALAGARY, Alberta – Massive wildfires have broken out in eastern Canada and British Columbia and the smoke plumes are severe enough to cause breathing problems among millions people throughout North America. Wind patterns are moving much of the smoke south into the USA and causing a thick haze over the upper east coast, disrupting air traffic and highway travel. It has been reported that both Justin Trudeau and Joe Biden have sneezed. This caused a full-scale alert at the North American Air Defense Command.
A majority of people already have a decent supply of masks left over from the COVID panic and you are advised by health authorities to make use of them in the current situation. That, or quit breathing. What to do about it has the US Environmental Protection Agency completely baffled and they have no idea at all what to do. Following their usual procedure, they will wind up making some imperious pronouncement about how they are studying the situation and will issue a report in 20-30 years if the US Congress appropriates enough money.

One action the US government has already taken is to transport all of the marijuana it has seized on the Mexican border up to the northeast and dump it on the fires. Of course, this just makes the fires worse, but the people nearby don’t care nearly as much. The provincial government of British Columbia is dealing with its own wildfires and is using the burning weed to placate their own populace.
