Was There A Landslide Somewhere Else?

Why, oh why, did it take Anne McLellan so long to tour the flood damage in Calgary in southern Alberta? Paul Martin had valid business to attend to, so it’s understandable that he couldn’t come until now. But Anne McLellan is the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness. Given that there aren’t a lot of other emergencies in Canada right now (save perhaps the ongoing NHL lock-out), it strikes me as odd that the minister responsible for disasters and the Senior Political Minister for Alberta (well, the only Minister - and only MP - for Alberta) would wait until now to come see the flood damage.

I imagine next weekend she will be off to see the damage from Hurricane Ivan in Nova Scotia and then she’ll be off to tour Ice Storm damage in Quebec.
