Updated October 23, 2014: This documentary was posted on SHTF School’s community forum. It is about the aftermath of the flood in High River, AB. It is worth watching to get a sense of what your family may face in an forced evaluation. It is also a bit of a cautionary tale about what can happen when the government thinks it knows what’s best for people, and using the force of law doesn’t allow people to help themselves and protect their own private property.
