A panel featuring Cree Elder Lillian Shirt, Indigenous rights lawyer Clayton Leonard and Indigenous activist and Greenpeace campaigner Melina Massimo-Laboucan.

The Public Trust Doctrine and the Future of Water in Alberta

Mar 22 2011 - 7:00pm

Featuring Michigan-based attorney and public trust doctrine advocate Jim Olson and University of Alberta water expert Dr. David Schindler

It is a critical time for water in Alberta, with over-allocated rivers in the south of the province, increasing concerns about the impact of tarsands operations on water quality and quantity in the north, and increasingly dire predictions that climate change, increased population and other pressures are driving Alberta towards a water crisis. Since 2008 the Alberta government has been reviewing the provincial water allocation system, with indications that it intends to introduce a province-wide, largely deregulated water market when it updates the 1999 Water Act.

T’Sou-ke First Nation: The Most Solar-Intensive Community in Canada

Mar 23 2011 - 7:00pm

Chief Gordon Planes with Andrew Moore – Project Director

Following a year-long visioning process the T’Sou-ke community embarked on a programme to achieve energy autonomy, economic self-sufficiency and food sustainability while utilizing the ancient wisdom and skills still available within First Nations communities.  Their on-going achievements include three solar electric systems totaling 75kW, thirty eight residential solar hot water systems, and an ambitious energy efficiency programme along with indigenous plant propagation and food-producing greenhouses.  In the process of building these many projects the T’Sou-ke First Nation has trained many young people in the solar and sustainability trades and inspired many other communities to follow their lead.
