Another government consultation?
Why Albertans need to speak up about the new energy regulator.
Many of you may have missed the most recent news about Alberta’s single energy regulator, just before the Family Day long weekend. The Alberta government issued a press release on Valentine’s Day, announcing 18 public consultation sessions throughout the province and an on-line survey. This initiative is intended to gather public input on the regulations to be made under the Responsible Energy Development Act, which created this new body, the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER), scheduled to begin work and decision-making June 2013.
The Environmental Law Centre (ELC) has been seeking strong and effective environmental laws since it was founded in 1982.
