Create a flood commission: Scott Forbes, WFP

In today’s WFP View from the West, Scott Forbes says we need a flood commission so the province is prepared for floods in  increasingly unpredictable times.

“Clearly the lake has been managed to sit in the upper reaches of the operating range: residents around Lake Manitoba who have argued that for years the lake has been too high have been correct.

The government of Manitoba needs to establish a blue ribbon Assiniboine Flood Commission that brings together stakeholders — the residents of the Assiniboine basin, farmers, ranchers and business owners — with our best hydrologists and engineers to design a comprehensive water management strategy.

We don’t need finger-pointing and political games. We do need to identify shortfalls in our current flood preparations and a logical plan to address these needs expeditiously.”

  1. Thank you for some other great article. Where else may anybody get that type of
