Alberta Liberals applaud Redwater Supreme Court decision and renew call for Cleanup Bonds

Alberta Liberal Leader David Khan and MLA David Swann issue the following release on the Redwater Supreme Court decision.

Khan stated, “We believe in the polluter pay principle. We also believe Alberta taxpayers must be protected from massive liabilities. This historic Supreme Court ruling goes a long way to strengthening safeguards for our environment and Alberta taxpayers. Bankruptcy can no longer shield irresponsible energy companies.

“Alberta Liberals believe more must be done to address the province’s estimated $260 billion in cleanup liabilities. We have to adopt proactive measures against worst case scenarios.

“We are renewing our call that Alberta energy companies be mandated to purchase reclamation and cleanup bonds as insurance against financial catastrophe.”
