Appeal for Environmental Study – Premier

After receiving Alberta Environment’s response that an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) of the Heartland power line is not necessary because Alberta Environment already knows what the impacts are, RETA has appealed to the Premier. In a letter to Premier Stelmach, RETA President Bruce Johnson says the Heartland Line is unique and so massive (73-metre-tall towers) that only a formal EIA under provincial legislation will adequately assess the environmental, public health, public safety and socio-economic impacts.
