A Closer Look at Bow Basin Flood Mitigation Proposals

December 1, 2014

Wild Lands Advocate article, December 2014, by David Robinson. The floods of 2013 made Calgarians aware of a harsh truth:  flood risk levels in the city are high.

No public hearings are scheduled. Only one Alberta organization, the Alberta Wilderness Association, is independent enough that it continues championing public land and the people's right of access to it. So people must speak individually, as they have so many times before, directly to the premier, the minister of Sustainable Resource Development and their MLA, and remind them of what public land means to all of us, that none of it is surplus to our needs, that we do not want it sold.
