New bill addresses landowner complaints, says Fenske

FORT SASKATCHEWAN – Local landowners may be set to benefit off the recently-passed Bill 2, the Responsible Energy Development Act.

The bill creates a new single energy regulator for the province, which Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville MLA Jacquie Fenske said can only benefit locals.

“For the Fort Saskatchewan area, there will be two aspects of that bill that will be very important,” she said following the bill being passed in the Alberta Legislature. “One will be that the single regulator for industry will streamline that process; and secondly, for our landowners, there are some additional opportunities for them to ensure that their rights are being addressed.”
