You may already be aware of the devastating floods Alberta has experienced in the past 10 days, with some areas receiving up to an amazing 8-11 inches of rain and over 100,000 people evacuated.
In even more worrying news, police have confiscated firearms from flooded residences 'for safekeeping' much to the outrage of the citizens. [JWR Adds: It is noteworthy that with Canada's system of gun registration, the police knew exactly which houses to search, for some categories of guns.]
Thanks to you and other preparedness advocates, many of us were able to avoid the shortages that followed.
