EUB Proposes to Weaken Enforcement Policy

Martha Kostuch

Media Release

April 4, 2005

The Energy Utilities Board (EUB) is proposing to revise their Enforcement Policy. On March 21st, the EUB issued Bulletin 2005-09 inviting comments to be submitted by April 8th on their Draft Compliance Assurance – Enforcement Directive.

The Bulletin talks about prevention of noncompliance, continuous performance improvement and communication and education but according to Martha Kostuch, an environmentalist who is active in energy issues, there is nothing in the draft objective that enhances prevention, continuous improvement or communication and education.

The Draft directive on Compliance Assurance – Enforcement which accompanied the bulletin sets out the proposed new enforcement policy. The Bulletin and Draft Directive are available at www.eub.gov.ab.ca/BBS/new/Projects. Read more about EUB Proposes to Weaken Enforcement Policy

Alberta Wilderness Association

"If the situation weren't so deadly serious for Alberta's grizzlies, you might believe that it was some sort of bad taste joke," says Nigel Douglas, Alberta Wilderness Association Conservation Specialist. "Some of the justification which we have seen for continuing to hunt a threatened species has been laughable." Read more about No Fooling! Alberta Continues To Hunt Its Threatened Grizzly Bears
