It could take several years for Alberta to fully recover from historic flooding which has devastated southern parts of the province.

Life is slowly returning to normal in Calgary and power has been restored for about half of the downtown core.

The Stampede, Calgary’s premier tourist attraction, will open on July 5 come “hell or high water,” according to event officials.

Thousands of residents from Canmore to flood-ravaged High River still wait to return to their homes and assess what is left.
