Today, Alberta Party Leader Greg Clark slammed the PCs for not doing enough to protect our river communities and downtown Calgary. The government has only approved the Springbank Dry Dam Project. “We support the Springbank Dry Dam,” said Clark. “But it’s not enough. The Mayor says it’s not enough. The city’s experts say its not enough and residents of flood affected communities know it’s not enough.” The Alberta Party is advocating for construction of either or both the Glenmore Diversion Tunnel and/or McLean Creek Dry Dam Project. The City commissioned a study which showed that the Glenmore Diversion Tunnel was feasible and when combined with Springbank, the combination would offer robust mitigation to protect our river communities and the thousands of jobs in downtown Calgary. “Outside of election campaigns Gordon Dirks has been silent on the need to protect our river communities and downtown Calgary,” said Clark. “Dirks has not said if he supports the Glenmore Diversion Tunnel or McLean Creek and he certainly hasn’t advocated for either one. In fact, Dirks has barely said anything about the flood. The only thing he’s done is to have a former high profile flood advocate, Emma Grace May, who now works in the Premier’s office, issue robocalls and letters to flood affected residents.“ Read more at greg-clark.ca/what_about_flood_mitigation http://www.greg-clark.ca/what_about_flood_mitigation
