COMMENT: Sierra Club Prairie on Rob Renner's appointment of tar sands monitoring review committee

27 Jan 2011

Dustin Johnson, Energy Campaigner with the Sierra Club Prairie had the following to say about Environment Minister Rob Renner’s tar sands monitoring announcement: 

 "It is frustrating to see the environment minister promise Albertan's a 'world class' monitoring system for future environmental stewardship and yet stake their advisory committee with the interests of big oil. Albertan's should be outraged by the appointment of Industry interests such as TransCanada Corporation, Tailsman Energy and Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers on this committee and yet once again we see the marginalization of local people and Indigenous knowledge holders."
