RETA in the News

RETA has received quite a bit of coverage on the appeal we launched about a week ago. CBC carried a story about our appeal the day after it was filed, which noted in particular the debate about the costs of undergrounding. (AltaLink repeated their baseless claim that undergrounding would ‘double’ the cost.) You can read the full story here:

Articles in the last couple days in the St. Albert Gazette and Sherwood Park News have also brought greater attention to our appeal, and emphasized that RETA is one of many groups of concerned citizens that is actively opposing this transmission line overbuild. Those two stories are accessible at:
