Premier Notley’s challenge: take Alberta to its next stage of development, including a more sustainable energy industry
There are two big factors working against the oil sands that will curb future growth. One is economic, with the dramatic fall in oil prices making investment in new oil sands plants less attractive. The other is the urgent need to address climate change much more aggressively, which also puts future oil sands investments at risk.
