According to Environment Canada, floods are the costliest natural disaster in Canada in terms of property damage. They are also the most common. In this new production from filmmaker Matt LeMay, we look at extreme weather events, in particular flooding. Using Belleville, ON as the primary example, we hear homeowners discuss their fears and experiences as the rising waters of Lake Ontario pummelled their homes and properties in the spring of 2017. Communities across the country experienced similar disasters. Brian Kelly, Manager of Sustainability for the Region of Durham discusses the importance of communities learning to adapt to the impact of climate change to mitigate the risks. Important infrastructure changes must take place across the country as many culverts, drainage ditches, river banks, roads and bridges were designed for the climate we experienced 50+ years ago. For too long, we have fuelled the needs of industry at the expense of the environment and safety of our communities.

Hurricane Katrina. Hurricane Sandy. The increasing frequency of such devastating weather events demonstrates the realities of climate change and rising seas. For many coastal communities the impacts will be devastating. They have been fighting against vanishing coastlines for years with mixed results; often having no choice but to abandon properties and move buildings. Adding to this conversation are the conservationists and scientists who feel the coastlines should be left alone for a multitude of different reasons. Rising Tides explores the topic of coastline erosion, showing what has been done in the past, what is being done now, what worked, what didnโ€™t and what the coastal areas can expect in the future. Through interviews with scientists, experts, nonprofits, homeowners, government officials, and other groups offering possible solutions, Rising Tides covers all angles of this life-threatening issue. This award winning documentary offers an interesting and educational perspective so that the viewer can decide what should or should not be done to combat this global threat in our very near future.
