Panels Not Pipelines: A Speaking Tour About Solutions

Oct 16 2014 - 8:00pm to 10:00pm

These problems have left many Albertans wondering if we could write a different story. A story that still creates jobs and keeps our economy strong but without the environmental downside.

Luckily those solutions are readily at hand and Alberta is the perfect place to implement them. Read more about Panels Not Pipelines: A Speaking Tour About Solutions
