Alberta has faced more than its fair share of environmental and fiscal horror stories. The province's chaotic emphasis on hydrocarbon development has delivered endless pipeline leaks, growing bitumen pollution and unaccountable one-party government. 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.
This October come listen to Jane Kleeb from Bold Nebraska as she tells the story of not only how her community stopped the KeystoneXL tarsands pipeline from endangering the Oglala aquifer but also how they are also building real energy solutions in the process.

On the tour other prominent speakers like award winning author and journalist Andrew Nikiforuk, solar energy guru Randall Benson with Gridworks Energy Group, and wind and solar expert David Isaac may also join Jane.
This is a moment not to be missed. Read more »
