A new study completed by the District of North Vancouver shows that if a major earthquake shakes the coast of British Columbia, we’re in trouble.

 

 

This is a sobering reminder, to me anyways, that we live in a corner of the world that’s susceptible to the raw power of this potential natural disaster. For a kid from rural Alberta, it’s a reality I previously only thought possible in movies. As we watch the heartbreaking aftermath of the events in Nepal, it’s difficult not to worry about our own reaction to the shift of the ground beneath our feet.

 

So my question to you: should we be implementing greater methods of damage prevention? Should we be boarding up the windows and building shelters? Or is the potential of a gigantic earthquake’s effects insufficient to change your outlook?
