P.C. MLAs Don’t Answer Questions

In early February, RETA had sent a questionnaire about electricity transmission to the 21 MLAs directly impacted by one of the newly-planned 500 kilovolt power lines. Only one MLA responded – Rob Anderson, Wildrose Alliance MLA for Airdrie-Chestermere. Not one of the 20 Progressive Conservative MLAs took the time to respond. See news release, list of affected MLAs, and the questionnaire.

ATCO Electric is planning the Eastern Alberta DC Transmission Line, AltaLink is planning the Western Alberta DC Transmission Line, and AltaLink and EPCOR are planning the Heartland AC Transmission Project, all 500 kilovolt lines, some with towers 75m (246 feet) tall.
