ENERGY & ENVIRONMENT POLICY

Alberta enjoys the benefits of abundant fresh
water, exceptional landscapes and high
air quality. A diverse and rich environment
comes with the responsibility of properly
protecting, sensibly utilizing and respectfully
appreciating Alberta’s natural heritage.
With good governance; meaningful and
collaborative decision-making; and effective
leadership; the Alberta Party believes
we can advance our resource economy
while at the same time honouring and
preserving our unique natural ecosystem. .
THE ENVIRONMENT
The Alberla Parly believes lhal we can improve
our environmenlal condilions and simullaneously
conlinue lo expand our economy. Improved
governance oI waler resources, responsible
developmenl oI land, high air qualily, and
reduced GHG emissions are all very achievable
goals in Alberla. The Alberla Parly believes lhal
wilh cooperalion belween cilizens, induslry,
and governmenl we can make lhe province a
heallhier and more prosperous place lo live in.
!"#$%&'#()*$+*(),-.$/0.012$31($)"#$45)5(#6
Alberla will slrive lo become a global leader
in environmenlal slewardship. The Alberla
Parly envisions a Iulure in which:
· Inlegraled environmenl and energy
policies are developed wilh inpul Irom
induslry and lhe people oI Alberla.
· Waler is viewed as a public good lhal is
responsibly shared amongsl all Alberlans
and conserved as a maller oI course.
· Alberlans are empowered lo make suslainable
choices lo reduce lhe amounl oI wasle lhey
produce and lo conserve more energy and waler.
· Land use policy in Alberla is Iounded upon
a suslainable balance oI conservalion,
developmenl, reclamalion and resloralion.
· The qualily oI our air is among lhe besl in
lhe world and our greenhouse gas ¦GHG)
emissions are signihcanlly reduced.
OUR 4 PRIORITIES
1. WATER MANAGEMENT
The Alberla Parly recognizes waler as lhe mosl
imporlanl resource we possess in lhe province, and
believe lhal ils inlrinsic value should be emphasized.
We also recognize lhal waler resources are complex,
as lhey are deeply inlegraled wilh lheir surrounding
environmenls. We believe lhal, moving Iorward,
responsible managemenl and good governance are
essenlial. This is especially lrue given lhe increasing
pressures pul on Alberla's waler resources by
lhe realilies oI a changing climale, increasing
populalion demands, a growing energy induslry,
and expanding communilies. The Alberla Parly
encourages economic developmenl parlnered
wilh lhe responsible managemenl oI waler.
Good governance oI our waler resources requires
a shared governance model lhal is supporled by
science ¦Ior example, adequale moniloring), public
parlicipalion in decision-making, a prediclable
regulalory environmenl, eBeclive managemenl
lools, and incenlives Ior conservalion. Alberlans
also wanl lo be assured lhal our waler resources are
equilably dislribuled lo benehl lhe Iulure growlh
oI lhe province's communilies, local economies
and resource developmenlwhile prolecling
lhe inlegrily oI our waler resources. The Alberla
Parly will develop a slronger and more complele
process Ior selling slandards, moniloring, and
conserving waler. The governance syslem Ior waler
resources is a crilical componenl in ensuring lhe
suslainabilily oI our walersheds and wellands.

2. LAND MANAGEMENT
Alberla's landscape is diverse and bounliIul. Our
province is home lo ecologically unique areas
lhal Alberlans cherish, and an abundance oI
resources lhal have conlribuled greally lo our
lhriving economy. Consideralions oI land use
will be very imporlanl lo Alberla's Iulure as we
slrive lo slrike a balance belween developmenl
and conservalion. The Alberla Parly believes
we can make decisions lhal supporl economic
growlh as well as accommodale bolh public and
privale inleresls, all while ensuring lhal lhe
land in our province is developed suslainably.
Land use planning is imporlanl Ior responsible
developmenl oI Alberla's land and resources.
II done well il provides proleclion lo areas
lhal require conservalion, creales slronger
communilies, ensures lhal compleled projecls
are properly reclaimed, and helps Iosler resource
developmenl in a more suslainable way. The
Alberla Parly believes signihcanl improvemenls
musl be made lo lhe environmenlal aspecls
oI land use planning in our province.
%2$%&'#()*$+*(),$718#(29#2)$:0&&6
· Ensure planning Ior reclamalion is ongoing
during lhe liIe oI a projecl. This includes
working wilh slakeholders lo creale a more

3. AIR QUALITY
Whelher we are oul exploring nalure or walking
downlown, Alberlans expecl a high qualily oI air.
As cilies grow and our province conlinues lo expand
resource developmenl, il will become increasingly
imporlanl lo ensure we manage airborne pollulanls.
The Alberla Parly believes lhal our nalural
areas, our induslrial areas, and our municipal
hubs should have lhe cleanesl air possible.
!"#$%&'#()*$+*(),$:0&&6
· Creale a long-lerm aclion plan lo
reduce commercial and personal vehicle
emissions. Provide municipalilies
incenlives lo supporl allernalive Iorms
oI lransporlalion such as public lransil,
bicycle inIraslruclure and high-speed rail.
· Consider air qualily in lhe same conlexl
as land and waler in regional planning,
and develop local and regional air qualily
managemenl objeclives. We will provide
Iurlher supporl lo exisling planning zones.
This includes consideralion oI vehicle
emissions in urban sellings, induslrial
emissions in concenlraled induslrial areas,
and unique rural silualions such as gas
planls and conhned Ieeding operalions.
· Slrenglhen lhe air qualily managemenl

4. CLIMATE
Alberlans wanl lo be leaders in energy produclion
and GHG emissions managemenl. As we slrive
lo become a leader in energy developmenl we
musl recognize and accepl lhal growlh brings
challenges. The energy induslry in our province
is currenlly emissions-inlensive Irom lhe
eleclricily we produce, lo lhe Iuel we burn, lo lhe
hydrocarbons we exporl. The Alberla Parly believes
lhal by Iocusing policy specihcally on our climale
we can lurn lhis challenge inlo an opporlunily
lo lransilion lo greener energy lechnologies lhal
will posilion our economy Ior a slronger Iulure.
Ensuring GHG emissions decrease, even in
Alberla's oflen booming economic climale, will
require ambilious planning and cooperalion
wilh many slakeholders. The Alberla Parly is
commilled lo slrenglhening GHG emissions
policies by employing evidence-based, cosl-
eBeclive melhods. This will require a mix oI
legislalion and slralegic direclion. We will employ
a number oI solulions in order lo ensure our
emissions decrease while our economy lhrives.

3. ELECTRICITY – TRADITIONAL
POWER FOR A NEW CENTURY
Today, Alberla generales, lransmils and dislribules
eleclricily using a model in which generalors and
consumers are connecled via an aging high-vollage
lransmission grid. The need lo upgrade Alberla's
eleclricily inIraslruclure gives us lhe opporlunily
lo modernize our eleclricily syslem lo one which is
more energy-eBcienl, more responsive lo demand
peaks and lows, and lowers GHG emissions.
Working closely wilh power consumers and
producers, an Alberla Parly governmenl will
creale lhe condilions lo advance a more versalile
eleclricily syslem lhal lakes inlo accounl:
· Energy and conservalion.
· Incenlives lo reduce demand by people

· The cosl oI lransmission and dislribulion.
· The environmenlal and social impacls
oI proposed power planls.
· The oI people and businesses

impacl and allow people lo be more selI-
in meeling lheir energy needs. The
lhal lhese lechnologies bring lo Alberla
should be acknowledged and rewarded.
Low-impacl eleclricily generalion Irom wind
