Peak Oil Meetup Event, CityHall, Tues June 19, 8pm

Why is U.S. Energy Security Canada’s problem?

A Presentation by Gordon Laxer
Date: Tuesday June 19, 2007
Time: 8:00 P.M.
Location: Toronto City Hall, Committee Room #2

Little-known facts:

* Ontario imports almost half its oil from the world market, and Quebec imports over 90%.
* Canada has no oil reserve and the National Energy Board has no emergency plan.
* Canada’s energy cannot go to Canadians first in times of scarcity.

If you’d like to find out why, and what we can do about it, come and hear Gordon Laxer from Alberta’s Parkland Institute discuss energy security in Canada and Ontario, and why the Conservatives tried to shut him up!

Read Laxer’s op-ed in the Globe and Mail (28 May 2007): “Easterners could freeze in the dark.”

This event is brought to you thanks to the efforts of:

* The Coalition for a Green Economy
* Post Carbon Toronto
* Green Enterprise Toronto
* Grassroots
* Parkland Institute
