CBC News Calgary reported:

“Conditions on the Bow River continue to be dangerous and pose a considerable risk for anyone on the river in any type of watercraft. Due to the recent flooding, there have been significant changes to the stability of riverbanks, increasing the danger of being on or near them. Debris in the water poses an extreme hazard and water clarity is low, obscuring hazards and obstacles just below the surface,” officials wrote in a news release.
