River Safety

We’re all anxious to get out there and start enjoying the warmer weather.  The Calgary Fire Department has issued a warning about the Bow River, however, which is NOT back to normal after last year’s flood.  Check out the story in the Calgary Herald by clicking here before you grab your raft or tube.
