When I started hearing reports of a flood surpassing the one in 2005 coming Calgary’s way, it didn’t really hit me until I started seeing the pictures. But seeing a city and area I love and know so well in such trouble was eerie and emotional. I guess it’s a small taste of what people in New Orleans and New York and Oklahoma have felt recently.

I grew up in the foothills of southern Alberta and the Calgary area has been very good to me and my career for at least a couple of decades. I feel like I have to help in whatever small way I can. There will be bigger charity events, and I plan to be involved with those too, but it was important for me and some of my Edmonton musical friends to show our support and concern more personally by having our own benefit event as well. I hope this can give the people down south a little boost knowing that we’re thinking about them, both in Calgary and in the surrounding areas that were flooded, including the High River area and the Siksika Nation.

    when I see the damage that can be done by water in a very short time, It really puts life on earth into perspective. We are so fragile as humans to the worlds natural elements. Toronto witnessed that just a week ago. I guess if we have food, clothes and shelter, we truly are blessed. So nice to see people helping others in these moments of unexpected and frightening experiences. Your a wonderful Albertan Corb Lund. Keep doing good to your neighbours!
