Alberta's 20-year plan for oilsands development is short on specifics

Canadian Business (February 12, 2009) – Alberta has released a 20-year plan intended to give its oilsands developments a cleaner environmental image around the globe, but the strategy is light on specifics. The government report calls for action to reduce emissions, curb fresh water use and cut tailings produced by oilsands projects. But the 50-page document offers no details on how measures to achieve these goals would be enforced.
