Authorities are working to restore power, gas, water and communications to make sure the Canadian town of Fort McMurray, Alberta, is safe for evacuees to return to. Over 80,000 people were forced to leave their homes as the oil hub town was engulfed by a massive wildfire, beginning in late April. To provide further support to the evacuees, the provincial government is issuing prepaid debit cards worth about one thousand dollars per adult to those affected. CCTV’s Jim Spellman has the story.
