Government to assist Canadians with preparing for Disasters

Federal Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said that the government will begin to assist Canadians with preparing for natural disasters caused by extreme weather linked to climate change.

The government will commit several billion dollars to ensure communities are better able to deal with floods, forest fires, drought and ice storms.

This could mean building floodways and dikes to eliminate or reduce damage from a swollen river, constructing tornado-safe rooms or burying electrical cables to prevent ice buildup.
