Fifteen Years Of The Ghost-Waiparous Access Plan - Another ABSRD Failure

Alberta Wilderness Association

News Release: May 4, 2005

Fifteen years of public demand for a Ghost-Waiparous Access Management process have finally produced a draft Access Management Plan which offers little more than a free-for-all for motorized recreationists. Opponents of the proposals, including local residents, watershed organizations, tourism operators and environmental groups, are fed up that, once again interests of motorized recreationists have been allowed to steamroller all other concerns.

EUB Proposes to Weaken Enforcement Policy

Martha Kostuch

Media Release

April 4, 2005

The Energy Utilities Board (EUB) is proposing to revise their Enforcement Policy. On March 21st, the EUB issued Bulletin 2005-09 inviting comments to be submitted by April 8th on their Draft Compliance Assurance – Enforcement Directive.

The Bulletin talks about prevention of noncompliance, continuous performance improvement and communication and education but according to Martha Kostuch, an environmentalist who is active in energy issues, there is nothing in the draft objective that enhances prevention, continuous improvement or communication and education.

The Draft directive on Compliance Assurance – Enforcement which accompanied the bulletin sets out the proposed new enforcement policy. The Bulletin and Draft Directive are available at www.eub.gov.ab.ca/BBS/new/Projects. Read more about EUB Proposes to Weaken Enforcement Policy

No Fooling! Alberta Continues To Hunt Its Threatened Grizzly Bears

Alberta Wilderness Association

Friday April 1st - or All Fools Day - marks the first day of Alberta's spring grizzly bear hunt. The irony is not lost on Albertans, who have been increasingly calling for a suspension of the hunt until grizzly populations recover to a healthy level.

"If the situation weren't so deadly serious for Alberta's grizzlies, you might believe that it was some sort of bad taste joke," says Nigel Douglas, Alberta Wilderness Association Conservation Specialist. "Some of the justification which we have seen for continuing to hunt a threatened species has been laughable." Read more about No Fooling! Alberta Continues To Hunt Its Threatened Grizzly Bears
