A little about CAROL CHRISTIAN

One of those people who arrived in Fort McMurray for a short time – six months - but eight years later is still here. Love this place, the people, the outdoor escapades and the incredible heart of the community. Work hard, volunteer lots and would rather sit and chat with someone than do housework. Passport always at the ready to jet off to some wonderful global locale. So much to see and do.

If there’s a niche that needs filling or something is broke and needs fixing - as the saying goes - Dave Hill has likely stepped in. Name sound familiar? It should. He’s a third generation pharmacist in town. But he’s more than just a pharmacist; he’s also been an engaged…

The Wood Buffalo region has long had the dubious distinction of having some of the most expensive commercial/industrial land found in North America. Compounding that is the land surrounding Fort McMurray is almost all Crown land, meaning it has to be released from the provincial government. Not always an easy…

“We have the energy the world needs – our challenge is getting it there.” That statement by Greg Stringham, vice-president of oil sands and markets for the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) also serves to highlight a recognized need for expanded transportation methods.
