This is a very important issue regarding Drainage / EPCOR tranfer.
Tomorrow City council will make a decision on EPCOR’s bid to acquire Edmonton’s drainage assets for practically nothing. As a recent study shows it’s a good deal for EPCOR but not for Edmontonians. Call your City councillor to tell them we need to keep Edmonton’s multi-billion dollar drainage assets public.
Use this easy, one-click tool and let your Councillor know, briefly and firmly, that Edmonton’s biggest publicly owned asset needs to stay public.

On March 21, 1960, police opened fire and killed 69 people and wounded 180 others who were peacefully demonstrating against apartheid “pass laws” in the township of Sharpeville, South Africa. The General Assembly of the United Nations subsequently declared March 21 the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, calling on the international community to commemorate that tragedy and work together to confront racism and discrimination wherever they exist.
