A group is organizing a province-wide protest rally for Albertans unhappy with the direction their province is taking Nov. 5.

The Pipestone Flyer was contacted through email Oct. 27 and notified of the “Alberta Wide Rally” to be held this coming Saturday in 12 locations across the province, including the closest in Camrose.

On its website www.albertawiderally.ca, organizers stated, “Welcome to Alberta Wide Rally, where Albertans are encouraged to stand up, and speak up, about the policies and practices of the current provincial government.

“Each location will speak to the issues that affect their region but we do have a common thread, and that is the implementation of the Carbon Tax Legislation. The ‘Climate Leadership Implementation Act’ comes into effect January 1st, 2017. Since the purpose of this Act is to impose a levy or tax on fuel from the individual consumers and throughout the fuel chain to business, we are gravely concerned.”

Rally events are planned to be Saturday Nov. 5 at noon or at times below, unless otherwise indicated, but the Alberta Wide Rally website noted times may be subject to change.

Locations, as of Nov. 1, include Airdrie – Co-op Car Wash – Yankee Valley Blvd S.W, Brooks – The Heritage Inn 11.00 a.m., Calgary – The McDougall Centre – 455 6th Street SW, Camrose – Icon Safety -Convoy Line-Up at exhibition grounds 10:30 a.m., Drayton Valley – 5702-50a Street, Beside Kal-Tire, Edmonton – Alberta Legislative Building, Fort McMurray – The Provincial Building – Franklin Avenue, Grande Prairie – Jubilee Park, Hanna -The Hanna Round Up Centre, Lethbridge – Galt Gardens, Medicine Hat – The Tourist Visitor Centre, by the Teepee-noon and convoy at 11:00 a.m. at Brier Park and Red Deer – City Hall, Down Town 11:00 a.m.
