The Town of High River DRP Advocacy Committee represents personal and community experience that substantiates our role as advocates as to how the delivery of DRP could be improved. There is a great deal of passion driving the recommendation to review the entire DRP process to ensure no community would ever have to deal with these same issues again. While it is important that a review take place, our first priority is that the outstanding claims and appeals of High River need to be addressed. The committee’s immediate requests are:
Finish the Job by resolving:
- All outstanding files by June 20, 2016
- All appeals by December 31, 2016
Further, that all necessary efforts are undertaken to ensure this process is brought to completion with all appropriate respect and compassion for the victims of the High River flood.
Fix the System
The DRPAC asks that the Government of Alberta commit to complete a thorough, external review of the DRP as it has been conducted in High River and other communities in order to facilitate a redevelopment of this program to address the significant program failures experienced in response to the 2013 High River flood.
