CBC's The National at the NAIT Productivity and Innovation Centre

Today, CBC’s The National will be hosting a live panel event discussing the economy and future of Alberta at our recently completed NAIT Productivity and Innovation Centre. The National Conversation is a chance for all Canadians to have their say and ask their questions about the future of Alberta. From oil and gas and pipeline, to the energy sector, to the broader economy. What does the future of Alberta look like, how does it impact the rest of the country, and how can we prepare for the future? Attendees will have a chance to ask questions of Premier Notley, policymakers, analysts and front-line stakeholders with insight into the challenges and opportunities that Alberta faces.

Livestream of the discussion can be viewed on the National’s Facebook page on February 5 at 6:00-7:30 p.m. MT (8:00-9:30 p.m. ET): https://www.facebook.com/thenational/
