Quick note: the Alberta floods

The Frontier Centre for Public Policy recently published a report I authored on the Alberta Floods. You can read it here.

Takeaway: mitigation measures pay. I know it's tempting to write-off post-disaster spending as altogether extravagant (boggling recovery costs!), but the berms, dams, land-use regulations and relocations are sound investments. It's just too bad they didn't happen sooner.
