Duh! I blame the idiotic craze for waterfront property. People pay a premium to watch their property flood. How stupid is that?
But that's not greeeeeeen. F*cking moonbeams. I hope they are soaked to the gills.
Alberta Warned - Stop Development on Flood Plains - Nobody Listened, as Usual
Now, here's the thing. That report came out in 2006 but the Alberta government sat on it until just last year. And that's got the former MLA who chaired that committee a bit angry.
Great advice there... Some of the homes along the Elbow and Bow have been there for damn near 100 years... Why is this report so late?
What does that really mean for those communities (and teh originaly city) that needed to build on the shores of the only river for miles?..... Like every major city in NorAm!
Austen, Dallas, Fort Worth, Columbia on the Brazos, San Antonio etc etc etc
You really need a trip to'Lukenbach country, 'CM.... Let them show you how its done!
A number of years ago there was a huge fire in the mountains above Penticton
many didn't have fire insurance. The reason it cost so much for the property and
to build the home they couldn't afford insurance. Of course insurance in the area
where they built was outrageously expensive if they could get it at all.
Makes you wonder people want the view from the mountains or the view from the
beach, they can't afford to insure it but they do it anyway. I think the expect some
government relief if there is a disaster. My answer to that is No Way.
