Provincial Candidates at AWA Water Forum

April 1, 2015

Wild Lands Advocate article, April 2015, by Chris Saunders

Preservation of water resources is a foundational issue and fundamentally affects human life as well as the ecosystem as a whole.

It was with this in mind that the AWA held an “all-candidates” forum on water in advance of the May 5, 2015 election. The panel comprised the following candidates: Evert Smith, Alberta Party; David Reid, Green Party; David Swann, Liberal Party; Robyn Luff, New Democratic Party; and Leah Wamboldt, Wildrose Party.

No public hearings are scheduled. Only one Alberta organization, the Alberta Wilderness Association, is independent enough that it continues championing public land and the people's right of access to it. So people must speak individually, as they have so many times before, directly to the premier, the minister of Sustainable Resource Development and their MLA, and remind them of what public land means to all of us, that none of it is surplus to our needs, that we do not want it sold.
