Appeal Court Judge Denies Abraham Glacier Wellness Resort Permission to Appeal

Alberta League for Environmentally Responsible Tourism

December 1, 2004

In a decision released yesterday, the Honourable Justice Berger dismissed an application by 1006335 Alberta Inc. for leave to appeal the decision of
the Clearwater County Subdivision and Development Appeal Board (SDAB).

In their June 2004 decision, the SDAB had denied 1006355 Alberta Inc. a development permit for their proposed Abraham Glacier Wellness Resort.

The Appeal Court Judge denied permission to appeal the SDAB’s decision because the appeal would have little chance of success.

The Judge found that the main basis for the SDAB’s decision was the lack of information provided by the proponent.

In summary, the evidentiary deficiencies noted by the SDAB are incapable of being overcome.” Read More

Alberta Wilderness Association

News Release: November 18, 2004

Despite recent surveys indicating Albertans rank the environment among the highest of priorities,
neither the candidates themselves nor the media have addressed environmental issues in the current provincial election. Alberta Wilderness Association (AWA) says the inadequacy of election coverage
and candidate unwillingness or inability to respond to a recent AWA environmental survey is indicative of how an issue of central importance to Albertans is being ignored. Read More

Report Urges Governments to Put a Price Tag on Nature

professor of economics and director of the Public Policy Program at Simon
Fraser University in Vancouver that illustrates the economic value of
