CALGARY — Ed Whittingham, executive director at the Pembina Institute, made the following statement in response to today’s announcement detailing members of the province’s climate change advisory panel and its consultation approach:
“The provincial government and panel chair, Andrew Leach, have put together a well-balanced line up of experts who bring a mix of perspectives and experience to guide its climate change consultation process.
“A broad and transparent consultation process will provide valuable input as the province seeks to develop a credible climate strategy that reflects the priorities and concerns of Albertans.
“Addressing climate change with timely, science-based and effective action is a critical foundation for Alberta’s future health and prosperity. The Pembina Institute welcomes the broad scope of the consultation plan and the clear framing of the challenge outlined by the Minister. There are many solutions available to help Alberta cut carbon pollution and adopt cleaner energy options. We look forward to working with the panel and participating in the consultation sessions.”
Alberta’s new government will be acting soon on an election promise to protect the Castle – they need to hear from Albertans today!
Please take a few minutes to write to the Alberta Minister of Environment and Parks to support the legislated protection of the entire 1,020 km2 Castle Special Management Area as a Wildland Provincial Park. This designation will be an important (and long overdue!!) conservation achievement for Alberta and will demonstrate the seriousness of our new government's commitment to environmental leadership.
