So apparently, the Unite the alt-Right Alberta government is refusing to acknowledge (let alone congratulate) the town of Raymond, for what is actually a pretty significant achievement.


The question becomes, is downplaying or ignoring Canadian success stories a good political move for the Cons?
RAYMOND, Alta. — A small Alberta town is the first in Canada and likely the first in North America to produce as much of its own electricity as required to run town operations.

It’s called “net zero” as far as electricity is concerned and it has been achieved in Raymond, population about 4,000, by installing solar panels on nearly all town-owned buildings.

It is an approach other towns and municipalities could also embrace, said Jason Atkinson of Enmax, the Calgary-based utility that partnered with Raymond on its solar generation project.
