Public consultations provide foundation for Alberta's climate change response

Edmonton... Albertans will have an opportunity to help shape Alberta's next plan for reducing greenhouse gas emissions throughout the province.

"With the introduction of our legislation we have closed the loop on our action plan and we are set to meet the next challenge," said Alberta Environment Minister Rob Renner. "We want to hear Albertans' ideas on how we can continue to work together to address greenhouse gas emissions, for not only today, but well into the future."

Beginning March 27 in Lloydminster, a series of 10 community workshops will be held throughout the province during March and April in order to give Albertans an opportunity to provide input on the climate change plan. Read more about Albertans to help author next steps on climate change
