Legislating Conservation: Challenges and Opportunities

October 31, 2014

I know…this report on Dr. Ted Morton’s November 2014 Martha Kostuch Lecture was almost as long in coming as the major landuse legislation passed by Ed Stelmach’s Progressive Conservative government in 2009. Morton ushered that law, the Alberta Land Stewardship Act (ALSA), through the legislature. The former minister recounted to a full house at Hillhurst Cottage School last November how he regards that law as one important success of his tenure as Sustainable Resource Development Minister.

Ted Morton – 2014 Martha Kostuch Annual Wilderness and Wildlife Lecture

More logging appeared imminent because vandalized landscapes, just like homes with broken windows, tend to invite more abuse.” Andrew Nikiforuk. This tells it all, whether oil and gas, logging, OHVs etc. already exist, then it seems governments are gung ho to keep going and open it all up to more activity and abuse. . . and why we need AWA more than ever.
