On September 16, 2021, AWA, in collaboration with the Coal Policy Working Group, hosted the fifth in our ongoing series of Town Hall evenings. The four participants reflected on what’s happened over the course of the summer, where they think we may be headed this fall, and where Alberta should be headed.
On this occasion. we were joined by four experts: Professor Nigel Bankes, Professor Emeritus, Faculty of Law, University of Calgary; Bruce Masterman, Outdoors writer and Councillor for the Town of High River; Laura Myers, Administrator/Moderator, Protect Alberta’s Rockies and Headwaters Facebook Group; and Adam North Peigan, Chairman of the Mountain Child Valley Society.
