A group opposed to the construction of the over head lines that will travel along the eastern edge of the Capital Region, has purchased radio ads and created a website to try and sway public opinion against the government's plans.
The group, Responsible Electricity Transmission for Albertans, or RETA says that if the Heartland project goes ahead the Colchester School in Strathcona County will be closed.
The radio ads feature the voice of a child pleading with Premier Redford not to build the Heartland lines.
"Mrs Redford, please don't build those power lines," The voice in the ad is heard saying. "Those power lines are going to force my school to close".
The ad goes on to ask listeners to visit the groups website for information, and explains why they think it will be dangerous for area residents.
Garnett Genuis with RETA said purchasing advertising is a drastic step but the group needed to do something to get the government's attention.
