Shania’s Return and George Hit # 1 on This Day !
2 new reports released today come with good news and bad news. The bad news is, looking at 15 dikes along the Fraser River between Hope and Mission, all but one are too low. The good news is, communities are banding together to try and fix this before castastrophe strikes. One of the reports focuses on predicted flood levels in comparison with actual crest levels along the Fraser, and the other report looks at the effects of things like climate change on river levels. The Fraser Basin Council is going to launch their “Lower Mainland Flood Management Strategy” next Tuesday, and the presentation will feature a number of speakers from various cities. Among the speakers will be Chilliwack councilor Jason Lum, who is Chair of the Lower Mainland Local Government Association’s Flood Control and River Management Committee, and Grand Chief Doug Kelly, President of theSto:lo Tribal Council.
