Confusion over global forum in Alberta
EDMONTON - With six weeks to go before Alberta is to welcome global leaders at a World Economic Forum in Lake Louise, the minister in charge says he's not sure it will go ahead.
Cal Dallas, minister for intergovernmental affairs, says the date has become fluid, but he says the event could still go ahead as planned on April 24 and 25.
The April dates were announced in January by Premier Alison Redford during her visit to another World Economic Forum event in Switzerland.
Dallas says the dates are subject to change to make sure all the delegates who want to attend can be accommodated.
The gathering is to present ideas on energy and environmental sustainability that will inform future World Economic Forum discussions.
The Opposition Wildrose says a government insider has leaked the party information that shows the forum was cancelled for April after Redford's office announced it before details had been finalized.
