was a lobby group in St. Albert, Alberta
that ran newspaper advertisements supporting a specific alignment for the West Regional Road
and endorsed candidates for election to St. Albert City Council
during the 2001
municipal election. The candidates endorsed by the group - Richard Plain
and James Burrows
, Neil Korotash
, Lynda Moffat
, Doug Ritzen
, and Curtis Stewart
for alderman - were all elected.
The group was criticized for revealing neither its members (only one spokesperson, local public relations professional Dawne Fowler, was ever named) nor its financial backers. After the election, Advertising Standards Canada found that the group's advertisements were "inaccurate and misleading".
