June 2013 Canmore, Cochrane; Bragg Creek and Redwood towns were one of the first to be hit with flooding as welland now yes CANMORE the home of the perverse Canmore Traffic court, and RCMP traffic ticket revenue generation as I have already written recently, the severe flooding moved on to Calgary and next to many cities along the rivers ofsouthern Alberta. The RCMP have no time to get money from speeding tickets but instead they have to help instead the flooded citizens.. that must hurt their false pride and economic income.
July 2013.. Federal Official Opposition Leader Thomas Mulcair himself after visiting Calgary, Alberta said he doesn’t think the rest of Canada has a full understanding of the devastation caused by floods that hit southern Alberta now. “ it’s easy to forget that there are months, and months, and months of cleanup. And then years and years and years of rebuilding” Many of the Albertans, First Nations and even low-income Albertans, including seniors, who were pushed out of their homes NNED TO be put back into proper housing EVEN before the Alberta winter hits. Who will help to do all of this still? Almost no one? Donations received are just a drop in the bucket.
WELL I DO UNDERSTAND THE DEVASTATION AND IT’S FULL CONSEQUENCES FOR I LIVED THERE FOR 15 YEARS, WORKED EVEN AS A REALTOR THERE..
CALGARY ALBERTA DOES NOT HAVE THE MONEY OR THE SKILLED MANPOWER TO REBUILD FROM IT’S UNEXPECTED DEVASTATION THAT OCCURRED INSTANTLY AND WILL TAKE DECADES TO RESTORE.
Up to 150,ooo people without a Home to live in or a home that is flood damaged and NO one will pay for the repairs to it.. Major roads, even bridges damaged, the C-train put out of action for weeks, accessibility across town, or to downtown extremely difficult, the whole downtown core shut anyway.. Infrastructure damage in the Billions of dollars, months or years to repair too.. and No one had ever thought such a devastation would ever happen. The Government of Alberta does not have the cash or income to pay for all of this too.
Insurers won’t cover homes hit by overland flood waters. “There’s no overland flooding coverage in Canada.”
Now Flood emergency lifted in Cochrane; Bragg Creek and Redwood residents permitted to return..
DUE TOO THE HEAVY ABNORMAL RAINFALL IN ALBERTA, THE FLOODING OF THE RIVER BASINS THAT STARTED IN BANFF, NEXT IN EXSHAW, CANMORE,
Bowness park Where many of the seniors, poor people live, their homes were flooded too. Flooding impact in downtown Calgary is so dire that some parts of the core may take weeks or months to return to normalcy, Mayor Naheed Nenshi said on June 20,2013 . Calgary Alberta Downtown business to be shut down at least a month due to floods, power outages In Alberta now price gouging is going on . Products such as water and ice etc ., are being sold at jacked up values. “Under the emergency management act in province of Alberta, price gouging or price fixing above normal levels during a state of local emergency is illegal and it would take some cooperation between ourselves and police but individuals could be prosecuted for that,” and “the legislation states the cost of goods before a local state of emergency should be the cost of goods during the local state of emergency.” Fire Chief and head of the Calgary Emergency Management Association Bruce Burrell says there are laws against it which protect the consumer. But it is all still just cheap talk as no one has been arrested for it so far. Such is the bad reality.
Alberta’s cities rarely spend federal cash on disaster prevention While receiving hundreds of millions of federal dollars for infrastructure since 2006, southern Alberta’s flood-battered communities focused on building highways, leisure centres and event facilities rather than flood protection, which Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi acknowledges is not considered a “hugely sexy thing.” Since 2006, the list of projects Calgary sought, and received, Infrastructure Canada money for includes $138-million for roads, $63-million for public transit, $25-million for the home of the Calgary Stampede and another $25-million for a National Music Centre. Calgary’s 17 listed projects total about $366-million in federal cash. But none appear to have dealt with disaster mitigation, which an Infrastructure Canada spokesperson said “has been an eligible category for funding under several Building Canada and Economic Action Plan initiatives.” Municipalities have little financial incentive to pick disaster mitigation projects – when disaster does strike, the province foots the initial bill, with federal taxpayers ultimately picking up the vast majority of costs. In the case of High River, Alta., municipal officials ultimately stepped aside altogether, allowing the province to lead the recovery plan as well as pay for it. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/politics/ottawa-left-on-the-hook-as-funding-not-often-spent-on-disaster-prevention/article13094979/
A bad image problem is not the only main problem for Alberta even in July 2013..
Many of those affected by the recent flooding in Canmore, Calgary, Exshaw, high River, etc, are now looking back on the month that was and are starting to rebuild.
Flood info sessions planned. Provincial experts on flood mapping and the disaster recovery program will be available in communities affected by the floods at upcoming public information sessions.
The province is mandating that homeowners who live in the floodway can choose to rebuild and repair, or leave. If they choose to relocate, the province will assist them — in some cases, that means purchasing land. Residents living in flood fringe areas must flood-proof their homes if they want to eligible for flood relief in the future. The first information session was held in High River tonight. There are sessions planned in Medicine Hat, Calgary, Canmore, Lethbridge, Bragg Creek and Turner Valley. Many Albertans still do say they’re having a tough time finding contractors and equipment and others are still waiting for word on compensation from insurance companies and the province. The provincial government announced its long-term flood recovery and said “We know this work will take years — not weeks or months — and we will be there to support communities in their renewal efforts over the long term,” said Premier Alison Redford in a release. Prepared by the Flood Recovery Task Force, the plan looks to focus on four areas: financial support, repairing infrastructure, mitigating long-term environmental impacts and nurturing economic growth through reinvestments.
The planned Calgary Conservative Convention where there will be plenty of booze, balloons, pancake breakfasts, bucking broncs and more bull had to be postponed too . That’s all pretty standard fare even for a Christian evangelical Prime Minister. “There is some grumbling about how poorly the Prime Minister’s Office has handled the whole (Sen. Mike) Duffy affair.” On Wednesday, a Nanos Research poll conducted for the CBC found that 72 per cent of Canadians said they were dissatisfied or somewhat dissatisfied with Stephen Harper’s explanation of what he knew about the $90,000 personal cheque written by the prime minister’s chief of staff to cover Duffy’s inappropriate expenses. Only 27 per cent of those polled were satisfied or somewhat satisfied, which indicates that since 40 per cent of voters cast a ballot for the Tories in May 2011, a large number of Tory partisans are not happy with this whole affair.” Anyone really dumb to still believe he is a real Christian? Not me…https://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/06/27/how-many-rich-people-in-calgary-edmonton-alberta/
THE LYING SPIN DOCTORS TRYING TO GET MUCH NEEEDED CASH REVENUE IN ALBERTA WILL STILL SAY NOW THAT Alberta IS Down, but far from out
So can you tell I am rightfully no fan of Alberta, my having even lived there for many years now too? I have worked in many provinces, visited many Canadian cities, but the worst province, worst cities, worst cops, RCMP included, worst Ministers, worst pastors, worst Doctors, bad Lawyers, bad Accountants, bad Realtors, bad Politicians, bad Engineers included now, that I had encountered were in Alberta, even in Calgary, Edmonton.. it seems many of the bad people, the big liars, big crooks went now there first..
(Mat 21:18 KJV) Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered. 19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away. 20 And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away! 21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done. 22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.
Jesus himself clearly expressed rightful anger at the House of Israel, as well at a fig tree.. and he rightfully acted upon his righteous anger too
Since Jesus in regard to the fig tree, the nation of Israel as well, after a reasonable season he next found “nothing but leaves” – leaves without any taqsh- he knew that “it was an absolutely hopeless, fruitless fig tree” and he clearly said so as much
(Mat 3:8 KJV) Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:
This applies now to Alberta even..
And I thought that Alberta was bad till is started to visit the doctors, hospitals not only in Alberta but also in Quebec.
One of the too many false reasons too many patients die in Hospitals is that almost none of the medical staff feel any personal, real, negative repercussions themselves. That also includes the too many bad cops we seem to have now too, and bad civil and public servants too, bad politicians..
One of the best way that I have discovered to get to know what a person is really like, is work with him just for one whole day,.. and what you now saw next.. lying, bullying, control freak.. includes cops, politicians, doctors, nurses, pastors too.
I am a Canadian, retired and I do have an Engineering degree, from Concordia University , Montreal 1968, plus I had also now worked as a Re/Max Realtor in Calgary too. I follow Jesus, as per Matthew 2:37 The Old covenant from God is only to the Jews, Israel.
Now I am very heatedly involved in both Christianity and politics as well and I am very popular for my Graphic sites.
I have Pastored a Church or a few years and have dealt with many many politicians.
