(EDMONTON) The Premier of Alberta wants his government to disclose its policy largely on Climate Change about a week before it takes the path of the United Nations Conference in Paris at the end of months.
Rachel Notley said the provincial plan will include significant changes that will put forward a progressive and balanced approach in Alberta.
The proposals of the NDP government will improve the balance sheet of the province supporting Albertans “for future generations”, while ensuring a balance to help the industry to be “prosperous and healthy,” -t she explained.
She said her whole policy would probably not be ready in time for Paris, but it would at least announce the outline.
The UN is organizing a major summit on climate change in the French capital from November 30 to December 11 in order to set new reduction targets for emissions of greenhouse gases beyond 2020. The Prime Minister Justin Trudeau invited the premiers to accompany him.
Ms Notley said he will see if its plan is consistent with that of the federal government, arguing that Alberta could not have the same targets as the provinces that benefit primarily from hydropower.
“We will do our part, she assured. I am sure that, at least initially, we can establish an effective partnership with the federal government on that. ”
Currently, Canada is not close to reaching its target adopted in the wake of the Copenhagen conference in 2009, which provided for the reduction of emissions by 17% by 2020.
Under the leadership of former Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Canada had withdrawn from the Kyoto Protocol.
