Edson, Alberta, July 2nd, 2014 – Talisman Place has a new look! Following a landmark agreement between the Town of Edson and Talisman Energy, the new signage has been put in place at Talisman Place.

Mayor Pasychny says he’s happy to work with Talisman on improving the facility. “The agreement shows Talisman’s strong commitment to the Edson area and is a great example of what can be accomplished when the business community and municipalities work together.”
