The prime minister had previously said he would wait until the situation in the Alberta city had stabilized before heading out there, arguing that a visit from him would pull security and other resources away from the fire.

The fire forced the evacuation of Fort McMurray last week, and is estimated to have destroyed around 15 per cent of structures in the city. Some neighbourhoods were totally decimated, while others were largely untouched. The evacuation order remains in effect.
