Fire, Future, and Shit: TEMPLIN INSTITUTE October 10th, 2019. Calgary, Alberta On October 3rd, the Templin Institute announced it would be attending Paradox Interactive's annual convention; ParadoxCon, or PDXCO . We feel very privileged and honored to have been invited. However, we cannot in good conscience pass up the opportunity to use this event as a means to draw awareness to an important cause deeply meaningful to almost all the staff of the Institute, and its dozens of fans worldwide. Last year, a patch was released for "Stellaris", a video game developed and published by Paradox Development Studio and Paradox Interactive respectively. It included an update to how Earth was represented within the game and in particular new "planetary features". One such planetary feature, the "Alberta Impact Crater" was described in the following manner. "When 711949 Satis approached Earth and triggered the Great Panic of 72, everyone thought this was it The Big One had finally arrived. Fortunately, it wasn't big enough to cause an extinction event. Unfortunately, it wiped out much of Alberta." As a resident of Calgary, Alberta, I was heartbroken to find out that my home province was doomed to be destroyed by an asteroid, rendering both my transit pass and parking permit almost entirely useless. Alberta is a hopeful and optimistic province which has much to offer both Earth and the wider galaxy. Just this past week my local Dairy Queen caught fire, a stark metaphor for Alberta's burning passion and potential. We are also an efficient province, having reduced our number of seasons from the traditional but superfluous four, down to a more economical two; "I wish I had air conditioning" and "shit, it's cold." Clearly, Alberta deserves to survive. The Templin Institute will be using our time at PDXCon 2019 to urge the Stellaris Development Team, and everyone at Paradox Interactive, to #SaveAlberta. We ask that the "Alberta Impact Crater" planetary feature be removed, or as a matter of compromise, changed to the "Edmonton Impact Crater". Edmonton, after all, is just the worst. If you share our vision for a future with Alberta in it, we ask you to use the hashtag #SaveAlberta to voice your support. Thank You Marc "2 Fast 2 Furious" Gerst Creative Director & Commissioner of the Save Alberta Campaign Templin East Templin Institute TEMPLINJNSTITUTE A statement from the Templin Institute regarding our participation at PDXCON 2019. #SaveAlberta
