A grassroots pro-energy group of Albertans is planning a major rally at the Alberta Legislature in a few days.

Rally 4 Resources, the brainchild of some Western Canadian families, has an impressive list of guests speakers ready to roll at their rally planned at the Leg Nov. 2.

“On November 2, join Rally 4 Resources as they gather at the Alberta Legislature in support of Canada’s oil and gas industry and the responsible, moral and ethical development of our resources,” stated the press release.

“By attending, you will be sending a strong and positive message to policymakers about the need for government action supporting our industry, getting pipelines to tidewater both east and west, and creating much needed jobs. The economy of western Canada, and all of Canada, depend upon it. This family-friendly event will take place from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and will feature speakers from grass roots, industry and government.”

According to a press release sent to the Pipestone Flyer Oct. 25, guests speakers will include Bernard Hancock (roughneck), Brian Jean (Wildrose leader and leader of the Official Opposition) Leela Aheer (Wildrose Energy critic), Mark Scholz (Oil Respect) Casey Amatto (Canada Action), Ric McIver (PC interim leader), Richard Gotfried (PC MLA Calgary-Fish Creek), Tristan Boras (student advocate) and Orion Fike (industry advocate).

Co-founder of Rally 4 Resources and self-described “oil wife” Nicole Wapple stated in a press release that “By delaying these projects, in particular Northern Gateway, the Kinder Morgan Expansion and Energy East, this government is denying parents the ability to provide for their children, denying those that are close to retirement the ability to do that, and delaying astronomical amounts of tax revenue that we need for healthcare, education and social programs. We have capable and willing men and women ready to extract, process, and transport the world’s safest, most ethically developed natural resources in the entire world and it is time governments showed some pride and recognition to these people. It’s time the government stands with them and the industry, and promote the industry for what it is – the best in the world.”
