MLA Calls For Proactive Approach To Flooding

We need to be proactive instead of reactive when it comes to flooding. That from MLA for Charlotte-The Isles, Rick Doucet who isn't happy his idea to establish a committee on flood damage control was shot down by Premier David Alward. 

He tells CHSJ News the government's Regional Emergency Management Coordinators network only deals with flooding after-the-fact. He says we have to get into a proactive stage and get out in front of these things because they're going to be happening more and more frequently.

Doucet says we're losing an opportunity to open up some dialogue on a topic that's impacting all New Brunswickers.
