“Redford addresses Medevac, air quality issues with R-G”
From the Article
“We take this issue seriously and everyone admits there’s an odour problem. We know there’s an odour problem and the question is what can we do about it?” Oberle said.
“Last week (mid-February) in a cabinet meeting we delayed the decision on a large new project in the region which would have added additional wells and additional odour. The energy minister (Ken Hughes) signaled very strongly to the industry and to the ERCB (Energy Resources Conservation Board) that we’re not happy with their situation and it’s going to be fixed.”
Redford, who says she was happy with the progress, feels that the oil and gas industry needs to respect the communities they’re working in.
“They (the companies) shouldn’t be taking for granted that the Government is going to give them regulatory approval if they’re not taking these issues seriously.”
