Repeal Bill 50 Says New Alberta Liberal Leader

The Globe and Mail reports that newly-elected Alberta Liberal Party leader, Dr. Raj Sherman, says he would repeal Bill 50 if the Liberals form the next government. Bill 50 is the controversial Electric Statutes Amendment Act, 2009, that removed public input on the need for all the new high voltage power lines that the Alberta Government and the Alberta Electric System Operator (AESO) have planned throughout Alberta.

In March 2011, the Alberta Liberal Energy Critic, Kent Hehr, indicated to the Legislative Assembly (see Alberta Hansard) that the Liberal Party supports burying the proposed Heartland Transmission Project due to health concerns by residents who would be living next to the line.
