A Quebec man has pleaded guilty to numerous charges against him in relation to starting 14 forest fires near the Chibougamau area last summer.

Quebec man pleads guilty to starting 14 forest fires 

38-year-old Brian Paré told the Chibougamau courthouse that he was guilty of the 13 counts of arson against him and one count of arson with disregard for human life.

Paré’s arson attacks took place between May 29 and September 5, 2023. 

Chibougamau is a small town that was deeply affected by last summer’s fires.

The fires in the region led to deteriorating air quality, temporarily displacing all 7,500 residents from their homes.

Paré had made numerous posts on his Facebook page about the very forest fires he started, as first reported by the Globe and Mail. Paré stated that the fires that he set were intentionally started by the Canadian Government as some sort of climate change psy-op.

Arson carnage worsened by climate change, Gerald Butts says

Last year, Trudeau’s former advisor and long time pal Gerald Butts blamed climate change for the forest fires that were started by arsonists across Canada.

Butts, along with several Liberal MPs, regularly connects the forest fires in Canada to man-made climate change. 

One Twitter user asked Butts to comment on the fact that a man in Alberta was arrested last month for intentionally starting at least 10 fires around Cold Lake.

Butts responded by calling the user a “climate denier.”
