Feds should pay flooding costs
Published May 9, 2017
To the Editor,
It would seem Parks Canada did not learn from their flood disaster in 2013. Once again they prematurely filled up the large lakes at the top of the system. By mid April they had them all at full capacity leaving no room for possible and probable spring rains.
One only has to look at any lakes not connected to the Trent system and see there is no flooding problem on them. This system has no business being the jurisdiction of the federal government. All cost should be sent to federal government for this negligent operation.
