B.C. prepares for potentially disastrous floods

A sandbag dike holds back the water from the Fraser River in Chilliwack, B.C., on June 28, 2012. A major flood of B.C.'s Fraser River could impact as many as 2.2 million people, devastating residents, destroying First Nations' lands and putting a damper on the province's economy. Groups representing many of those interests are now developing a comprehensive flood plan, recognizing that the Lower Mainland is highly vulnerable to river and coastal flooding, and that climate change means the risk of a disaster will increase.
