Do you enjoy a pleasant read at bedtime to ease you to a peaceful sleep? Hidden Scourge is NOT one of those books! As the book’s title suggests, you are in for a deep-diving investigative book, one which will roil your guts with fear, shock and outrage. It requires knowledge of sciences, statistics, governance, information management, history, and policy and covers two provinces, one territory and two states. Dr. Timoney is a senior ecologist, living in Alberta. His award-winning book The Peace-Athabasca Delta: Portrait of a Dynamic Ecosystem, established his bona fides for science and scholarly writing. It focuses in part on how exploiting Alberta tar sands has damaged the ecosystem.

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.
