Pages at the Plaza
For a lively discussion on the merits and dangers of developing Alberta's oil sands, come to the Plaza Theatre for a debate between Ezra Levant and Andrew Nikiforuk.
Levant, author of "Ethical Oil: The Case for Canada's Oil Sands" will argue that the ethical cost of buying cheap oil from corrupt regimes is far too high. He feels that oil from a democratic state is an asset to world peace and stability. In contrast, Nikiforuk argues in his book, "Tar Sands: Dirty Oil and the Future of a Continent," that the environmental cost of developing Canada's oil sands will irreparably harm our environment. Nikiforuk would like an immediate moratorium on oil sands development.
The event takes place on Sunday, November 7 at 11:00AM (doors open at 10:30). General admission is $5.00. Admission plus Levant's hardcover book is $30.00.
Two of Andrews' previous books which I very much enjoyed and can recommend:
