I would have to say yes, for sure. A great piece of research, which I'll also dig out, done by the University of Saskatchewan, identified the impact of wetland drainage and the additive nature that it contributed to that flooding. What really drives it home is when you see the wetland drainage that goes on. If one landowner does it, it affects another landowner. If in one province it happens a lot, it affects another province—or state. It's local, it's provincial, it's international even, in its scope.
