A government that slashes the flood-control budget just days before the arrival of the annual spring floods is either dangerously determined or disturbingly dim.

In the case of Doug Ford's Progressive Conservatives, both descriptions apply when it comes to the cuts they made this month to 36 provincial conservation authorities around the same time torrential rains started falling across Eastern Canada.

Ontarians battling swollen and overflowing rivers from Ottawa to Bracebridge and east of North Bay last week suddenly awakened to the unpleasant fact that as climate change is making floods more frequent and severe in this part of the world, their premier is making it harder for them to protect themselves.
