Great News! We have made our Goal.

Keith Wilson - Lawyer

From: Alberta Landowners Council

Through the generosity of concerned people across the province, Alberta Landowners Council has reached the goal of $60,000.00 towards the Appeal of the AUC's decision regarding the Heartland Transmission Line. 252 Albertans (couples and individuals) came forward with commitments to donate.

Keith Wilson will be taking the next steps in the appeal on Wednesday, May 02, 2012 and then seeking an injunction to stop the construction of the Heartland Power Line. This is really great news. Alberta Landowners Council would like to emphasize that this has been possible because ordinary Albertans stepped up to the plate, and donated generously. You have realized how devastating this could be for all of us, and you have taken a stand to help, when it could have been so easy for you to sit back, and just watch. We are so proud of you, the donors who phoned and emailed from across this great province, to help support this effort.

We heard you tell us, with great passion and conviction that you want to help protect what is right, and are willing to donate your hard earned money to help Keith Wilson fight this 16 billion dollar boondoggle. For this, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We must also mention that none of this would have been possible if it were not for the relentless, self sacrificing effort and conviction of Lawyer Keith Wilson. He has been the beacon that has lead the way for us, always sharing his time, his expertise, and his desire to inform everyone so that we could understand how important this was for all Albertans. We are forever indebted to him for his thousands of hours of donated time.

We can all wish him the best now, as he has much work ahead of him with the Appeal, but can move forward knowing that we, ordinary Albertans are supporting him all the way. I ask that you please send your donation as soon as possible, as we are counting on all of you to complete your pledge. I will send you a receipt in the next couple of weeks.

Please make your cheque payable to:
Alberta Landowners Council 55017,
Range Road 262 Sturgeon County,
AB T8T 1A4
Write “Heartland Appeal” on the memo line of the cheque.
