The Canadian Armed Forces have wrapped up their response to the blizzard that cripples eastern Newfoundland on January 17.

Premier Dwight Ball and Derrick Bragg, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Environment, have expressed the province’s thanks to the personnel who responded.

Reservists and soldiers accomplished 900 tasks for people in and around St. John’s.

While this phase of the cleanup effort with the Canadian Armed Forces has concluded, cities and municipalities continue to widen roadways and begin the process of providing access to sidewalks.

The Department of Municipal Affairs and Environment continues to work with the cities and municipalities that have been impacted by the storm.
