Effective and innovative solutions are most often found by how we define our problems. We cannot limit ourselves to all or nothing compromises between only two choices. At that point, we risk surrendering fundamental truths about who we are and what we need. Now more than ever, we need to question the “truths” we have thought to be self-evident and cast in stone. We need to rethink the problems and redefine what they mean to Alberta’s future.
Most importantly, we need to find the common ground that binds us together and not repeatedly focus on the areas where we are apart.
For decades, the Alberta economy has been largely based by meeting the energy needs of the planet. This energy has heated homes, produced electricity, and created the most prosperous time in human history through continuous progress and international trade.
