Slave Lake Getting $189 Million To Rebuild

SLAVE LAKE, Alberta, Aug. 3 (UPI) — The Canadian town of Slave Lake, devastated by wildfires this spring, will get another $189 million to rebuild, Alberta’s provincial government said Wednesday.

The additional money will go primarily toward infrastructure and temporary housing for people in Slave Lake and the surrounding region, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported. The area had been allocated $100 million earlier.

“This is a big step for the physical and emotional recovery Slave Lake needs,” said Winona Twin, a councilor with the Sawridge First Nation.

The May fires destroyed 374 properties and damaged 52 others in Slave Lake. Another 59 properties were destroyed and 32 damaged in nearby areas.
