I don’t know anything about how Tar Sands work other than there is oil in the sand, but based on several emails I’ve received there is a debate around Tar Sands development. Large source of oil vs. the environmental impact of focusing on oil extraction.
A number of local groups are coordinating a province wide set of nine debates between Dr. Carolyn Preston (debating for Tar Sands development) and Andrew Nikiforuk (debating against increased development without national targets for renewable energy.)
The Regina debate will be held this Thursday, March 19 from 7PM – 9PM at the University of Regina, Education Auditorium. Admission is free but donations are accepted. For more information contact Don Narine at 527-4566.
