Apr. 23, 2018, Peace River, Alta. - Deputy Fire Chief Julien Bergeron from Alberta's Northern Sunrise County Protective Services has organized a fundraiser to raise awareness for firefighter health, fitness and funds for the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation (CFFF).

Julien plans on running/jogging from Grande Prairie to Peace River this June and is selling legs of his journey to other fire departments. He has already met 85 per cent of his $10,000 goal and all of the proceeds will be donated directly to the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation.

The Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation was created to honour and remember firefighters who have been killed in the line of duty and to support their families. The CFFF is a registered charity and operates by fundraising.

The run should take four to five days and Julien will have travelled 220 kilometres by the time he is finished.

Check out his Northern Trek for CFFF information page and how you or your department can get involved!

April 20, 2018, Boisdale, N.S. – A maple sugar company in Cape Breton has burned to the ground, destroying much of this year's product. Highland Gold Maple Products, which has produced maple syrup from about 8,000 trees in the Boisdale Hills for more than 15 years, says on its Facebook page that the operation was destroyed by fire Wednesday.

Joe MacDonald of the Boisdale volunteer department says they were called to the family-run operation at about 5 p.m. Wednesday.

He says the building is in a remote area with a road that was covered in deep snow, preventing them from easily accessing the site.

MacDonald says firefighters trudging through the snow were met by the company owner who told them the building was already gone, along with most if not all of this year's maple syrup product.

The company owners were not available for comment, but thanked the community for their support on their Facebook page.
