Over 1200 military personnel have been called out to help with the flood situation in Quebec. Goodale said federal and provincial officials would negotiate which level of government will pick up what costs once the final bill is tallied.

"This Ontario request does not involve the deployment of Canadian Armed Forces personnel", he said.

NDP MP Matthew Dube, whose Quebec riding of Beloeil-Chambly experienced flooding in 2011, said flood-ravaged areas will need the military to help clean up all the sandbags troops are helping to put down and local residents will need financial help rebuilding their homes and their lives.

A third source said an extension of up to one year could be an option.Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih said on Monday the OPEC-led production cut could be extended beyond 2017. Goodale said one jurisdiction or government can not alone be responsible for responding to a natural disaster.
