Alberta Government Asks Federal Government for More Time and Funds for Caribou Planning
March 19, 2018
In a letter to two Canadian federal ministers, Alberta’s Environment Minister requests federal funding and more time to complete range plans. The Minister also states that Alberta is “suspending” consideration of potential Northwest protected areas until socio-economic impacts can be determined. These are the same areas that her appointed consultant, now her Deputy Minister, identified in his May 2016 report as having minimal negative economic impacts.
