“I congratulate Premier Alison Redford on her election last night, amid a heightened interest from Albertans in their province’s future. It was particularly encouraging to hear the Premier speak of wanting more bridges than walls, which is a sentiment shared by Canadians outside her province.
Environmental Defence looks forward to building bridges with the Premier, her Cabinet and all new Members of the legislature. We also look forward to more bridges being built between groups like ours and Alberta’s energy industry.”
