EDMONTON — The province of Alberta has announced a partnership to help the flooded community members of the Siksika Nation in southern part of the province.

It has been two years since flood waters forced almost 1,000 people from their ohmes and the community is still dealing with the aftermath working to rebuild homes, roads and other damaged infrastructure.
