Lack of consensus may sink Sturgeon River Watershed group
Edmonton Journal - October 23
The Sturgeon River Watershed Initiative is one of about 150 volunteer groups that sprang up largely after the province created a Water for Life strategy. The watershed begins east of the Pembina River and ends where the river enters the North Saskatchewan River upstream from Fort Saskatchewan. Leah Jackson represents the City of St. Albert on the group's board. She said the board spent six months talking about what their values should be without reaching consensus. The group has representatives from six different organizations with divergent points of view, she said. The frustration level reached the point where the board decided to call a special meeting for Nov. 19 to ask members whether or not the group should dissolve.
