Eco-Policies of Alberta's Next Government?

Speed up oil sands, give $300 in petro proceeds to each citizen, says surging Wildrose party. Explosive new public opinion research suggests Danielle Smith's libertarian-leaning Wildrose Party will form a majority government in Alberta later this month.

Blowing apart more than four decades of Progressive Conservative rule would be a major achievement for an upstart party barely four years old (and one considered further to the right than Alison Redford's right-of-centre premiership). It would allow Smith, whose campaign is being run by former Stephen Harper advisor Tom Flanagan, to piece together new, and arguably laxer, regulations for the province's oil and gas industry.

Wildrose's energy and environmental platform contains some policies certain to provoke and infuriate Canada's green movement, should the party achieve majority rule. Smith puts so much faith in industry's ability to restore strip-mined Boreal Forest, for instance, that she would actually speed up the approvals process for new oil sands projects.


Alberta's scary Sarah Palin. The way prices are rising by the time her $300 bribe is dispensed in 2015, it might buy a tank of gas.
