On May 5, 2015, Albertans will head to the polls and elect a new provincial government. It has been three short years since the last election and seven months since Jim Prentice won the Progressive Conservative leadership and became premier. Like us, you may be wondering: how does the environment factor into the platforms of the different parties? What are their climate strategies and their stance on the oil sands? We’ve done some digging and now we want to give you the answers you need!
Learn how the Progressive Conservative, Wildrose, Liberal, New Democrats and the Alberta Party stack up when it comes to their environmental policies. If you’re planning to vote and you care about conservation and climate change, you don’t want to miss this show.
