Broken Trust: The High River Gun Grab Fallout

The magnitude of the flood that raged through High River, Alberta in June 2013 surprised a lot of residents, even in a town which by its very name has obviously had its share of overflowing water.

In just a few hours, hundreds of millions of gallons of water rushed through the town of 13,000, 40 km south of Calgary. There was so much water that even neighbourhoods two kilometres away from the Highwood River – neighbourhoods that had never flooded before – wound up one to two metres underwater.
