Alberta Energy Minister Ignores the Facts
This excerpt from the March 8, 2011 Alberta Hansard indicates that the Hon. Ron Liepert, Minister of Alberta Energy, is ignoring all of the medically documented negative health impacts of overhead high voltage power lines.
As well, he is erroneously suggesting that the Alberta Government has no role to play in the building or siting of the Heartland power line. This of course is not true because his government passed Bill 50 in November 2009 which legislates the building of this line. And, the Alberta Minister of Infrastructure has the final legal say on whether or not the Heartland line can be built in the Sherwood Park Greenbelt (East TUC). It is also a well-known fact that the Alberta Energy department has been pushing to have the line built in the Sherwood Park Greenbelt.
So….for the Alberta Energy Minister to suggest that the Alberta Government has no role in this matter is simply not true.
