The Town of High River Alberta was hit with a disaster last week when the rains of southern Alberta initiated massive flooding throughout the area. Ever since the state of emergency was declared, they have been failing to handle the situation.
Instead of working together with the community, instead of fostering goodwill towards each other, they are abusing their new found fiefdom and threatening others who challenge their dominion. The town is rotting away, both physically and emotionally. Over 10,000 people are displaced from their homes for more than a week now, while their homes are invaded and their possessions robbed by the very people claiming to have their ‘best interests in mind’, the very people who are ‘keeping them safe’.
Rulers of High River, please see through your concerns for liability, your concerns for job descriptions, your concerns about making mistakes and let the people of the town join together and restore their neighbourhoods, restore their community and restore their sense of security.
