Coal remains a risk to Albertans unless Coal Policy reflects conservation values
Government of Alberta must develop a Coal Policy that protects Albertans into the future
Wait a second - I thought we already fixed the whole coal mining issue?
Not quite… But your actions and letters to the government have already led to two really big wins!
First, you helped to reverse the cancellation of the coal policy, next you helped us in the fight to reject Grassy Mountain. These are both great things to celebrate - but coal mining forges ahead in Alberta, and a new Coal Policy is in the works.
We have yet to see any commitments from the Government of Alberta to protect the Eastern Slopes against all future coal mining and exploration (as it stands now, mines could still go forward). This letter below is a direct ask to your MLA to push for greater protections in the Rocky Mountains and create a policy to keep the region safe from coal mining.
This is especially important RIGHT NOW as the Government of Alberta is currently working towards the development of a new Coal Policy. You have the unique opportunity to influence this policy. By sending the letter below - you can push for this policy to prioritize conservation, community values, and your family’s health and future.
