Chris Lockyer recalls the flood

Chris Lockyer points to where the flooded Red River was eating away the riverbank next to his home April 27 on Rue St. Pierre in south Winnipeg, less than a mile downstream from the Red River Floodway’s inlet control structure. While the river is still a flooding concern for some Winnipeg residents, without the floodway, “the house wouldn’t be here,” Lockyer says.
