What is your vision for Alberta?

by Martha Kostuch

Of course we want continued prosperity. Of course we want safe, affordable housing, good health care and accessible education. But the foundation of our well-being is really a healthy environment – clean air, clean water, healthy food, among other things. I can’t help but wonder how much attention our leaders are paying to the foundation these days.

The centerpiece of my vision for Alberta is a stable, resilient, healthy economy based on energies of the future, not energies of the past. This means ending our addiction to fossil fuels and using some of the revenues they generate to develop and implement alternative energy sources and to support energy conservation. We can do this, but not without strong leadership and a willingness to reflect on whether our current path is taking us where we want to go. Read more »

Pembina Institute Calls for Changes to Bill 46 (Alberta Utilities Commission Act)

For Immediate Release
November 2, 2007

Bill Needs Major Amendments to Protect Citizens’ Rights to be Heard

CALGARY - Today the Pembina Institute adds its voice to a growing list of outraged landowner and environmental groups that say that Bill 46 will eliminate or reduce Albertans’ already-limited rights to participate in important decisions about energy development. The Pembina Institute is calling on Premier Ed Stelmach to make major changes to the Bill and to demonstrate that the government respects public input by convening a public hearing before an all-party committee of the Legislature.

Bill 46 is the Alberta Government’s proposed legislation to shift the regulation of electrical transmission lines and other utilities from the Energy and Utilities Board (EUB) to a new Alberta Utilities Commission. "The legislation does not stop at the division of responsibilities between the two agencies. It also includes a series of changes that would significantly limit public involvement in energy decision making," says Steve Kennett, Senior Policy Analyst at the Institute. Read more »
