No Drilling Lethbridge Event: Urban Drilling in Alberta: What are the Political Perspectives? A panel discussion involving MLAs from all parties represented in the Legislature and their view on the proposed drilling in Lethbridge.

The forum will be held on February 20th, 2014, 7 pm at the University of Lethbridge Ballroom.

No Drilling Lethbridge is hosting an all party forum to discuss the issue of drilling for oil and gas within the municipal boundaries of the City of Lethbridge on February 20th, 2014, at 7pm in the University of Lethbridge Ballroom. Kent Hehr, energy critic for the Liberal Party, Jason Hale, energy critic for the Wild Rose Party, Brian Mason, leader and energy critic for the NDP have all confirmed their attendance. The Honourable Diana McQueen, Minister of Energy has been invited.

The issue of drilling in urban areas has come up time and time again in Alberta. The current government promised us a policy on urban drilling back in November 2013 and it is still not here. In the mean time, Albertans are wondering what an urban drilling policy would look like. So, we have invited the Minister of Energy and the energy critics to tell us what their ideas are on an urban drilling policy.

We are a small volunteer group of Lethbridge residents working to protect the health and safety of the people in Lethbridge, by being opposed to oil drilling and fracking within OUR city limits. We believe that the risks for Lethbridge greatly outweigh the benefit of acquiring the natural resource. We are not opposed to oil and gas exploration, generally. We are concerned about the negative impacts on OUR city and its residents if oil and gas drilling is allowed inside OUR city limits.
