The article doesn't say if flooding in that area is usual or not. One simply has to wonder if the flooding we're seeing is caused by overbuilding as well as global warming. Sorry for all the folks whose homes were damaged. It doesn't take much water to do extensive damage.

Today's headline: Why is Global Warming Stagnating? Obviously, they had huge floods throughout history and that subject never came up then!

Turned around by the police this morning on my way to work. Downtown core is completely closed.

Ah the Ford F150! All those horses drinking water at the same time. Mine has a heated tailgate so in the winter you don't get your hands cold when you push it. GM is coming out with an aluminum tail gate for their pick-ups because the wussies that drive them aren't strong enough to lift the steel gates to close them.

In the aftermath of Sandy I met a few Canadian power guys who came to help Con Edison out. One of them showed me pictures of his 3 young sons. He talked about missing them but feeling good about helping NYers out.

I'm sure American workers will be arriving in Canada soon to return the favor. I will definitely do what I can to help. Good luck neighbors.

What a terrible thing. We were in Vancouver about two weeks ago and loved the lace and the Canadians there were so friendly. Unbelievably friendly, and they weren't taking our money either ;-)

Canada is the BEST. So sorry folks in Canada that your idiotic neighbor to the south is causing the weather changes that is causing this problem.

Oh, we Canadians are equally to blame. We may not use as much fossil fuel, but we are eager to pump it out of the ground in the most damaging way possible.

Actually Canadians produce more greenhouse emissions per capita than the U.S. and so are a bit more to blame.
Canada is 10 th highest and U.S. 12th highest in the ranking.

You don't think Canada and China have anything to do with weather changing?

Say what? Floods in Alberta?

These are the same people that are pushing the KeystoneXL Pipeline down our throats. These are the same people who want to poison our country so they can sell oil to China.

The KeystoneXL Pipeline, a very inefficient way to get energy, will boost the carbon count in the atmosphere. That will create more extreme weather patterns. It was also increase the risk of floods everywhere - including Alberta.

Consider this flooding a preview of what's to come. As far as the people in Alberta are concerned, it's payback time. What goes around comes around.

You may blame our Republican-Democrat like Federal party, Conservatives and PM Stephan Harper for the cheerleading of the XL pipeline and YES this flooding is already changing minds. Most people I talk to in Canada are against the XL.

Not to sure about that? Spend a lot of time in Canada myself and really what they do is laugh at our health care system of old and praise Obama care. They seem to not grasp its opposition. Go figure? I'm sure you have more attainable information on this matter than I. Fact is I'm just passing along what I've heard from actual Canadians while in their country. Whom I might add I know none that come here to get the medical aid you speak of? I do happen to see a lot of Michiganders going over the bridge to buy their medicine though. Hmmm? Wonder what that is all about? LOL

We were in Vancouver last year. I had this discussion with several Canadians I met. I concur with your statement 100%. They were very happy with their healthcare plan and looked at the change to Obamacare as "about time" it happened.

We were there prior to taking a cruise. We had a very nice young lady who worked in Alberta at our table. I hope she is doing OK.

Actually OBama care is not any better than before, it is still private HC.
Canada has single-payer HC system and we Canadians look in horror at the US system. The major reason is that the US does not cover all citizens and the bills are insane, we do not get bills and we can move from one job to the next without loss of coverage. My late mother died of cancer and she only paid $100.00 per year for her meds and once over that plateau she paid ONLY $2.00 per prescription and she never saw a bill for the all other HC.

And Ralphie no thanks to you and your cheap shot when people in Calgary are hurting and thanks to the many USA folks with support and nice stories of travel here.
