Treading Water

October 16

The spring melt in 2011 produced water that would destroy communities and homes. It was said to be a once in 350 years flood. In a fight to save the city of Winnipeg, farm land and cottages, Assiniboine River water was diverted causing unpredictable flooding in Lake Manitoba and Lake St. Martin. The result? A state of emergency in Lake St. Martin and Little Saskatchewan First Nation. Three years later nearly 2000 people are unable to return to their community. Families have been separated, and substance abuse is on the rise. This has been Manitoba’s costliest disaster.
