Have you explored Writing-On-Stone Provincial Park?

> Closure is the name of the mechanism a government can use to shut down debate. It exists primarily in case the opposition refuses to bring debate to an end.

> In this case, it was used after just one MLA, myself, had spoken to Bill 9 during second reading.

This is the world's #most #destructive #oil @operation—and it's growing

Indigenous people and #environment*alists want to prevent the expansion of #Canada's oil sands development, and the #water and #air #pollution that come with it.
