Futures at stake: Families of Northwest Alberta in jeopardy
Northwest Alberta: we are a place of great potential and prosperity because of our active forestry, agriculture and oil and gas production. However, our region is now in danger of facing a dark future.
While the recent economic recovery and stable oil and gas prices began to spring hope for our families in the North Peace Country, the Alberta Government announced that it would be looking to seize one-third of our land to recover herds of the Woodland Caribou.
If implemented, this decision could shut down industry in our area, put thousands of Albertans out of work and starve farmers of new land to grow their operations.
The result could be abandoned towns and communities and people who will need to leave their homes - many of whom have been here for generations.
Please help us stand up for our communities! Tell the Alberta Government what you think of their plans or attend an in-person session:
