“We hope to give voice to those whose troubling experiences with hydraulic fracturing may not have not been considered in Alberta’s conversation around this method of energy development.
We hope to help to facilitate informed and thoughtful discourse so Albertans can make wise decisions about the future of our province.
With an assembly of experts, landowners and industry representatives, our aim is to foster constructive dialogue that will enable Albertans to manage our resources wisely.” – ALBERTA VOICES
