The Edmonton chapter of the Council of Canadians is excited to invite you to a three-part Study and Action Circle series where they will plan a people’s response to the challenge of cleaning up the toxic Athabasca tar sands tailing ponds and make this a provincial election issue. The study and action series will take place via Zoom and is a follow-up to the symposia series held with Keepers of the Water in fall 2022.
This event will be held Sunday, April 2 from 2-5 p.m. MT and will be an opportunity to learn more about the tailings ponds and to build community power in response to this massive public and environmental health hazard.
