This Week In Alberta:

  • After a small delay due to the unfortunate passing of First Nations leader and Fair Deal Panellist Jason Goodstriker, the Fair Deal Panel will convene for its final meeting in Airdrie tonight, at 6:30 pm. Our friends at Project Confederation are also holding a meeting before the Fair Deal Panel, at 4:30 pm - details here.

  • The province's consultations for the 2020 budget continue throughout the week. You can submit your feedback on how to balance the budget or participate in telephone town halls tonight if you live north of Red Deer, and tomorrow night if you live in Red Deer or south of Red Deer. Call 1-877-229-8493 at 6:30 pm and enter code 115500 to participate.

  • You can also provide your input on proposed changes to Alberta’s Food Regulation System here. The government is looking into ways that the province can reduce red tape while increasing opportunities and making it easier for home-prepared food entrepreneurs to do business. Do not forget to make your submission by February 2, 2020.


Last Week In Alberta:




The Alberta Institute doesn't accept any government funding and never will. We think you should be free to choose, for yourself, which organizations to support. If you're in a position to contribute financially, you can make a donation here.



If you're not in a position to donate, we understand, but if you appreciate our work, you can help by spreading our message. Please forward this email to your friends, follow us on Facebook and Twitter, and help make sure every Albertan knows what's going on in our province.
