Will the Tamarack oil well impact my property values? We need answers @SpearMac! #yql #PushForParticipation #LethCC

Will the Tamarack oil well flare? We need answers @AER_news! #yql #ABenergy #PushForParticipation

Lethbridge deserves to participate. Help us get a Participant Involvement Program @MFitzpatrickNDP and @SPhillipsAB. #PushForParticipation #yql #ableg

Tamarack Energy has licences to divert 65 million litres of water from the Oldman River for its well within city limits. How will this impact our water? #yql #lethcc #PushForParticipation

Why were we only given 5 days to file a Statement of Concern for the Oldman River water diversion? @aer_news @AB_Enviro #PushForParticipation #ableg #yql

Participant involvement does not end with our approval and issuance of a licence; rather, it must continue throughout the life cycle of an energy project. We want to participate! #PushForParticipation #yql #ableg #abenergy

What are the emergency plans in case of an oil spill? We should all be informed. #PushForParticipation #yql #lethcc

Come talk to us directly Tamarack! #PushForParticipation #yql #ABenergy

About the Author

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.
