Flood Watch 2013

As the rain fell Monday evening, the gates to the Red River Floodway south of Winnipeg were raised.

The uniquely Canadian version of the song, “Give History a Chance,” was released this week and will be shared in more detail in the latest issue of this month’s Canada History magazine.
