Statement from NDP Environment critic Brian Mason on delayed Climate Change Regulations

EDMONTON – NDP Environment critic Brian Mason released the following statement on delayed climate change regulations from the PC government:

“Today, the PCs have again delayed much-needed changes to the regulations governing this province’s greenhouse gas emission, continuing their neglect of protecting our land, air and water.

“The PCs’ neglect of this crucial issue endangers our industry, as well as our natural environment. Alberta needs to take meaningful action to address our international reputation.

“Albertans deserve a government that takes action on these issues. We need to take action to ensure that those who profit from our province’s emissions are held responsible, to invest in renewable energy, and to ensure that industry is able to behave in a responsible manner by passing strong protections for our air and water.”
