On March 4 2022, the government of Alberta released the Coal Policy Committee’s (CPC) two reports, and announced a ministerial order to halt coal activity on the Eastern Slopes for the time being. The Coal Policy Committee process was aimed at leading a comprehensive public engagement and providing recommendations to the government on the future of coal development in the province.

Wilderness is not – and should not be – a past and vanishing force in life. It is, as far as anyone can see into the future in our rapidly changing and uncertain world, an abiding value.
