ATHABASCA — It was a tense town hall meeting to discuss two proposed Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas (IPCA) surrounding three lakes in Athabasca County.
Over 200 people attended the town hall held in Grassland Dec. 6, despite the freezing weather, to hear from local and provincial officials to try and understand what the proposal entails and how it may impact landowners in the identified areas.
“We understand that rumours have been spreading causing division amongst our community members,” Athabasca County Coun. Ashtin Anderson said. “Athabasca County council wanted to share some of the information that we have obtained and take the opportunity to gain feedback from our residents.”
