Professor Mike Wotton will contrast fires in Canada with those we see in other fire-prone locations around the world. This will serve as a foundation for discussing the complex task of managing wildfires in Canada’s vast forested landscape, striking a balance between safeguarding the public and allowing fire to fulfill its natural role wherever possible.
