The Parkland Institute does non-partisan, political economic research on Alberta policy and society. Each year it holds a gala dinner to raise funds for its vital work; this year, the Parkland gala will take place on Feb. 19 at the U of Alberta Faculty Club, and will feature entertainment by singer-songwriter Terry Morrison.
If you have means and interest in supporting critical research on issues of vital importance to Alberta and Canada, please consider attending this event.
