I like to call oil sands advocate Robbie Picard, "the unofficial mayor of Fort McMurray." Sadly, as I told you last week, Picard's home was one of many that was destroyed in the fires that devastated that community.
He joins me again for an update on the situation.
Seeing the photograph showing all that's left of Robbie's house is heartbreaking.
However, he also praises the firefighters who managed to save so much of the community's infrastructure, and details the generosity of the local oil companies, who provided residents with fuel, water and even organized an "air lift" for pets.
Robbie explains why he thinks the evacuation was so orderly, and why so many residents are eager to rebuild Fort McMurray. It's pretty inspirational.
