Two years have passed since Calgarians came together to rebuild following the 2013 flood that devastated our City. Flood mitigation for Calgary must be a top priority issue in this Province. As Canada’s economic engine, failing to implement timely upstream mitigation for both the Bow and Elbow Rivers is not an option – the economic and public safety risks are too high.
The Alberta Government has been pursing options and we urge Calgarians to call on their MLAs and the Premier to ensure this important work continues. Flood mitigation efforts must move forward with a sense of urgency.
We are the Calgary River Communities Action Group. Our goal is to advocate for Calgary and affected Calgarians to all levels of government to make sure action is taken to protect us from future disasters; and to help everyone recover from the devastation caused by the June 2013 floods.
