It’s been two years since floods devastated large sections of southern Alberta.
The flooding, which saw water fill the Calgary Saddledome up into the seats, should have been memorable enough for the destruction that ensued.
Instead, many of us also remember it for something else, the unprecedented assault on civil liberties, the illegal search and seizures that took place particularly in High River.
Yes, I’m talking about the High River gun grab because it has been two years and still no justice, no action for those that saw the Mounties become the breakers of law instead of the enforcers.
It is an event that has had real consequences regarding trust and the police.
