  • AIRDRIE RURAL CRIME TOWN HALL SEPTEMBER 20th - MLA Peter Guthrie and MLA Angela Pitt will be hosting The Honourable Doug Schweitzer, Minister of Justice and Solicitor General on September 20th from 10:00 to Noon as part of his rural crime tour. An excerpt from MLA Guthrie's office follows:

    "On behalf of MLA Guthrie, we would like to invite you to participate in this informal discussion. This is a great opportunity to share your concerns directly with the Minister and provide your feedback on how to improve our rural communities. Our government has initiated comprehensive consultations as we move forward to better understand the needs of our rural communities, and we want to hear from you."

    The meeting takes place at the Airdrie Agriculture Centre, 97 East Lake Ramp NE. This is an excellent opportunity to influence our current government's support towards the fight against rural crime.
