Federal Election & Flood Mitigation

October 21, 2015 by CRC Action Group in Calgary River Communities, News

Premier Notley, we are encouraged by your comments on working with the incoming Prime Minister to secure additional funding for comprehensive flood mitigation projects to protect Calgary and other southern Alberta communities. Given Prime Minister Designate Justin Trudeau’s comments, he gets it. But regardless of which level of Government ultimately contributes to these projects, and when that money may flow, these projects must proceed now and quickly. We look forward to your clear support for the expedited completion of the in-flight Springbank Diversion Project and the prompt pursuit of the other scoped mitigation projects on the Bow and Elbow Rivers, to protect Calgary. As we’ve continually said since the Provincial election fully 6 months ago, the time to act is NOW.
