Video - Futures at stake: Families of Northwest Alberta in jeopardy

Northwest Alberta: a place of great potential and prosperity because of its active forestry, agriculture and oil and gas production. However, the northwestern corner of the province 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 families of the North Peace Country, the Alberta Government announced that it would be looking to seize one-third of their land to recover herds of the Woodland Caribou.

If implemented, this decision could shut down industry in the 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 may need to leave their homes - many of whom have been there for generations.

Please help us stand up for our communities!
