PROTECT CALGARY
Two years ago Calgarians came together to rebuild Calgary,
today we ask Calgarians to come together to protect
Calgary from future devastation.
We can’t afford to let this happen again
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.
