Premier Visits Lethbridge as Part of Provincial Flood Tour

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: Premier Alison Redford stopped in Lethbridge this morning, as part of a tour of Southern Alberta to assess the flood damage.

 

She noted that while the current situation appears to be far from over, they have already started looking at helping locally impacted residents long term, "We're resilient , we're strong and we're going to be there to deal with whatever the impact of this once it's over. We know that there will be people impacted by this, not only in the immediate municipal community of Lethbridge but of course the county. And we've already put in place a task force that will deal with not only cleanup, but of course the longer term consequences with respect to rebuilding."

 

Redford also praised the work of those who have stepped up during this difficult time, "I know there was incredible volunteer work done yesterday to clear out the artifacts at Fort Whoop-Up. You know this is something that really speaks to who we are as a community, the fact that people rally, that we have been able honestly in Lethbridge to do some very good mitigation work that hopefully will allow for a more safe and secure reaction."

 

Following the press conference Redford immediately set off again, as she's scheduled to visit High River and Canmore this afternoon.
