Mother Nature aside, also a clear lack of respect for the ****ing men and women who put their lives on the line to keep us safe.

All it takes is one idiot with a Camera to fall into the river, for several officers/rescue crews to have to save their *****; which in turn puts their lives at risk.

Stay at home people. If you want to see it, throw on CBC, Global or any other news station you have; warm up some hot chocolate or coffee and snuggle with a loved one, because you can do it; and the people who have been evacuated or moved from their homes cannot.

Bothers me, greatly.

Or at least be at safe distance, people crowding the top of Crescent Hill to see downtown is fine, the idiot I saw on facebook climbing onto a floating car to take a picture is not.

Looks like a lot of people are going to be out of luck

Alberta flood victims mostly out of luck with insurance

Not all flooding covered under insurance policies
. . .
Alberta homeowners who hope to make claims with insurers for flood damage will be out of luck in most cases.

That's because not all flooding is covered under most insurance policies.

The Insurance Bureau of Canada says water that comes in through doors and windows — called "overland flooding" — is not covered.
. . .
Flooding related to sewage backups, which could happen outside of flood zones, is covered under most policies.

The insurance bureau says those whose vehicles have been flooded and have comprehensive coverage will have the damage covered.

Alberta Municipal Affairs Minister Doug Griffiths noted there will be uninsurable losses and warned that property owners aren't intended to profit from the flooding.

"The fact that a person didn't bother to buy insurance doesn't mean the government will pay for it," Griffiths said at a news conference in Calgary.
If this kind flooding becomes a regular event, might be a good idea for people to start getting flood insurance.

Well consider the context that affected homeowners shouldn't expect to profit from the situation and he goes on to say

Was shocked to hear about this at work. Hope everyone is safe first and foremost.

With the age of the Saddledome and the apparent damage I'd say they're probably piecing together plans for a new stadium all together.

Prayers go out to those affected.

My deepest sympathies to all Calgarians effected. We may be rivals is sports but we are partners in economics and the overall success of Alberta.

I used to own a house in the Fraser valley in BC and one day while I was checking my insurance, I found out i was not covered by flooding and I could not get insurance because of where my house was located. And then there is the "act of god" clause in most insurances. If the companies can, they will invoke that as quick as they can and if they can they will put pressure on the government to make sure that they can. NYC last year when they got hit with all the flooding, when the hurricane came to shore is had been downgraded from a hurricane or tropical storm to something else. 12 hours after it hit shore, the insurance companies produced data proving the government data was incorrect and had the storm upgraded postmortem, saving the insurance companies billions of bucks on pay out.

when I bought my current house and got insurance, I did a double take when the insurance company tried to get fancy with its wording. My wife is a lawyer and when she looked at the insurance they were willing to give us, they tried to get sneaky and phrase the agreement a certain way where we would not be covered for the simplest damage that could be caused by mother nature. Took her about an hour to put things right

Who gives a crap. He's no more special than anyone else.

I have family and friends from Calgary so I am hoping for everyone to be safe and that they bounce back from this.... It's awful. Truly awful. You guys in Calgary do not deserve this. Nobody does.

Believe me it has happened.

One of the biggest things people can help with is staying at home. Going down to the flooded areas not only puts your life risk but also slows down emergency crews in traffic snarl ups. Stay a home with your family, it may sound simple but it helps.

I work for emergency services. There have been countless stories of the public doing amazing things to help us and we greatly appreciate it. But please stay safe at home and only travel if you absolutely need to.

Not sure if that's an insult, but whatever.


Since the 'Dome is all concrete, it should be fine, right?
