Event Inspiration

The history of the Calgary SW Ring Road is long and fraught with conflict. As it is now nearing completion, and the devastation to the surrounding ecosystems is reaching it fullest expression, we gather to honour the beauty that once graced this natural area. Many Calgarians have personal relationships with the areas known as the Weaselhead Flats Park and Fish Creek Provincial Park, seeking them out for moments of peace, fun, and healing from the rigours of living in an urban environment. The prospect of having a massive freeway roaring through these precious areas has generated much grief and sadness. We hope, through our observance, to acknowledge these losses, honour them with our actions, and perhaps bring a small amount of healing to the land and to our hearts.
