New Democrats release draft of Alberta’s plan to reform energy rules

EDMONTON — The Alberta New Democrats have released what they say is a blueprint for how the governing Tories plan to reform energy industry regulations.

The draft paper proposes tailoring environmental requirements to specific risks in different areas.

The document says managing development should rely less on government-set targets and more on groups working together to establish what’s appropriate.

The draft suggests that’s a better way to take into account the cumulative effects of many different activities.

The draft says a pilot project on what it calls “play-based regulation” should be in place by September.
