Since RETA was formed some months ago, we have made tremendous progress. We have engaged in numerous discussions with our elected representatives, AltaLink, EPCOR and the AESO and have made it plain to them that residents are furious about the notion of running massive 500kV power lines by schools, daycare centres, businesses and homes.

As many of you will know, we had a very successful town hall meeting on March 5th and we now have over 2,000 registered members.

Many of you have requested to have the chance to ask AltaLink, EPCOR and the AESO questions directly and so we set about to schedule another town hall meeting in June. That was nearly a month ago and so far they have declined to confirm a date with us. So, we’re going ahead anyway. The date will be June 17th (venue TBD but much bigger than last time). We hope that AltaLink et. al. decide to come, but in any event we hope to have a pretty exciting agenda (and possibly some very extremely interesting guest speakers). More on that in the next few weeks, but set those dates aside.

Lastly, we will be emailing a much more detailed account out to members in the next couple of days so stay tuned.
