created the Toronto Conservation Authority after the
floods that accompanied Hurricane Hazel in 1954 which left four thousand people
homeless. The Conservation Authority took control of the flooded land and
did not allow houses to be built where there was a chance of flooding. Toronto
not prepared for the inevitable? Calgary
Why with all of our know-how did they not build spillways and dams to prevent the estimated 3 to 5 billion dollars in damage, much of which is not covered by insurance? My sense of eco-activists is that they believe that natural disasters can be avoided by reducing carbon emissions. Snake oil anyone?
announced that $327 million would be spent on six
projects to reduce carbon emissions. Lots of tax dollars eh? Alberta represents a mere 6% of the world’s carbon emissions
and the evil oil sands represent 2% of this 6%. Canada
Should Albertans be proactive and spend money on projects that would protect them from future devastation or should they continue praying to the Gods of climate change, dressed as eco-activists? Maybe it's just me.
