(Recording) Webinar: Alberta Parks Closure Town Hall

Earlier this spring, the Alberta government revealed their plan to remove 175 of Alberta’s provincial parks from the park system without public consultation or park-by-park justification. This move undermines democracy and threatens the commons; the ecological, social and cultural resources, and heritages that are shared by all.

The Edmonton, Red Deer, Calgary and Medicine Hat chapters of the Council of Canadians hosted an online town hall meeting on June 17, 2020 to discuss this threat.

Expert speakers Steve Donelon and Chris Smith of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society examineed the implication of the Alberta government’s plan and suggested ways to respond.
