Alberta and the world

Edmonton Journal Garneau house for free
This month has been been for Alberta, Premier Redford was in India promoting Alberta's agriculture, oil and agrifood. The Indian market is enormous and growing. Our incredible reserves of oil, India's interest in them,  and with our diverse economy any future collaboration can only be beneficial.

"India is an important emerging market and the potential for the country to be a new market for our oil and gas is enormous,...Quite simply, the long-term costs to Alberta of ignoring huge markets like India are incalculable.” Premier Alison Redford 

Redford was at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland planned was a potential debate with Al Gore - famous for calling the oil sands and "open sewer".  Perhaps Gore will come to the World Economic Forum on energy and climate change to be held in Alberta April 24-25. It would be an interesting reception.

In Alberta we're looking at $20 Billion ( yes with a B) in projects planned for the heartland;

“We are on the verge of an explosion of development. Shale gas could be as big a resource to Alberta as the oilsands,”  Neil Shelly executive director of the Alberta Industrial Heartland Association 

On a local note these beautiful 1930s homes are free for the taking (and the cost of moving them) near the U of A.  Take a look
