Media Advisory - The North West Upgrader (NWU) Project- Another Boondoggle for Alberta Taxpayers

CALGARY, April 14, 2015 /CNW/ - The School of Public Policy will release a telling communiqué by former Finance Minister, Ted Morton, that gives a rare insider's perspective not only on the lack of effective government oversight and due diligence surrounding the North West Upgrade project but exposes the larger and longer pattern of failed government led diversification initiatives in Alberta and other provinces. With an election on May 5th and budget chatter of economic diversification plans, Alberta politicians should think long and hard before succumbing to the next version of the "refine it where you mine it" diversification siren song.

The report will be released online at on Wednesday morning at 9 a.m. mountain time.  A press release will be issued simultaneously across CNW. The author will be available by contacting Dana Fenech, below.
