Two Rallies On Oil Royalties
Oct, 17 2007 - 10:20 AM

CALGARY/AM770CHQR - With just days to go until the premier announces his decision on whether to hike oil and gas royalties in Alberta, two rallies are being held with two very different messages.
Quattro Energy Services is urging any and all grassroots oilworkers to come to the steps of the Legislature at 11 a.m. Wednesday for a rally against royalty increases.
Quattro President Derrick Jacobson warns this province shouldn't bite the hand that feeds it.
The Alberta Federation of Labour has a slightly different take and will be voicing their position in Fort McMurray with a competing rally on Thursday night.
Federation President Gil McGowan says if anything the royalty report recommending an increase of 20 per cent doesn't go far enough.
He says the "real" grassroots workers will be rallying in favor of the royalty report in Fort McMurray.
