Coal Mining on the Eastern Slopes

Panel Discussion

The UCP government announced the return of the 1976 Coal Development Policy in the face of broad and vocal opposition from all segments of Alberta's population. Does this mean our concerns over the environmental and aesthetic damage surface coal mines inflict on our beloved foothills can be laid to rest? Likely not! Many people are still concerned over the government's intentions and the status of existing leases. We have assembled three distinguished experts to help clarify these concerns in a panel discussion.
