Where there’s muck, there’s money, and nowhere is that more true today than the Alberta oil sands. Albertans love the money, but (especially in Northern Alberta) they’re not so keen on the muck. In response, the Alberta government has pledged “to be a leader in finding innovative ways to ensure both economic growth and greater environmental protection.”
Simon Dyer, director of the Pembina Institute’s oil sands program, isn’t persuaded, however, saying Alberta’s pledge “lacks substance, so I don’t think it will stand up to the increased scrutiny we’re getting”.
