Richmond not worried about sea level rise response

Tracy Sherlock interviews the director of engineering for Richmond, British Columbia:

“When you look at the value of the community and the built environment in a place like Richmond, the expenditure required to meet this challenge is really quite low. It’s really a bit of a no-brainer that you can do it,” [the director] said, adding that in today’s dollars, the cost to build up the dike would be $200 million to $300 million.

What’s two or three hundred million dollars between friends?
