The speaker will discuss some of the Alberta Governments tensions, balances, successes, and failures, of managing, conserving, and using the natural resources, wildlife, and lands of Alberta. This lecture is mainly for the benefit of a Liberal Education 3010 class on “The Land” (the course’s title).
