ALBERTA WIDE RALLY is the place where Albertans have a voice
Stand up for Democracy in Alberta
Contributed by the Alberta Wide Rally. @ 2016
Calgary, AB November 4, 2016– The Alberta Wide Rally is pleased to announce that preparations are ready at province-wide locations for tomorrow’s rallies – Saturday, November 5, 2016 at noon and at 11am in Red Deer. All Albertans are urged to come out and make their views known on the carbon tax, climate plan and other policy issues affecting our economy and employment.
The next step will be the launch of the Carbon Tax Referendum website. Once launched, every Albertan will have the opportunity to sign the petition no matter where they live. For more information please send an email to petition@carbontaxreferendum. ca.
The Alberta Wide Rally is a grassroots movement created by the people, for the people. We are standing proudly together on Saturday November 5 at cities and towns across our beautiful province to send a unified message to the government of Alberta that the majority of Albertans in fact do not support Bill 20, which includes the Climate Leadership Implementation Act, commonly referred to as the Carbon Tax. We do not support the manner in which this legislation is being implemented, and we state categorically that the current Alberta government does not have the authorization from the people to implement legislation that will cause such extensive and immense domestic changes.
Our collective mission is to have over 500,000 signatures on the petition to send a compelling message to the Alberta government that they have a moral responsibility to take this serious matter to the people for a fair vote.
We also have additional speakers that we are honoured and privileged to announce as well as corrections.
Calgary correction: Ken Gregory, Ba.App.Science; Maureen Gow will be speaking for the Oil &Gas industry
Airdrie correction: Dr. John Harper, FGSA, FGAC, Professional Geologist.
Airdrie additions: Mr. Blake Richards MP, Banff-Airdrie and Mr. Chris Leinweber
Red Deer: Norm Kalmanovitch, P. Geoph., as well we will have a variety of other speakers to cover all of the impacts and sectors affected by the climate/carbon policies and bills of the current Alberta government. There will be speakers on: Business, Oil and Gas Sector, Farms and Agriculture, Schools and Parental Input, families and Science. Other political leaders fighting for Alberta have been invited to speak on behalf of the people, and may in fact take the opportunity to speak.
Come on out this Saturday, November 5 at noon at locations across Alberta to stand with us and have your voice heard, meanwhile you can sign the petition. We are looking forward to seeing you all there and don’t forget a non-perishable food item.
