Kananaskis Falls: pre Horseshoe Dam

While I’m not against progress, after all the history of the Bow Valley is a story of industrialization, what with coal mining, limestone extraction and cement manufacturing and the Canadian Pacific Railway, I can’t help but think that Kananaskis Falls would have been much better off if the Horseshoe Dam had never been built.
