AWA Position Statement: Transmission Lines

June 21, 2012

AWA believes that to the extent possible, all new transmission lines must be constructed within existing corridors of disturbance. In all other cases, new transmission lines must be routed to avoid environmentally significant areas including regionally designated areas, protected areas, critical wildlife habitat, intact fragments of grasslands and parklands natural landscapes and AWA areas of concern, as depicted on our Wild Alberta map.

We simply need that wild country available to us, even if we never do more than drive to its edge and look in. For it can be a means of reassuring ourselves of our sanity as creatures, a part of the geography of hope.
