NDP government dissolves environmental monitoring agency and takes over its duties

NDP government dissolves environmental monitoring agency and takes over its duties

The NDP government announced it will take over environmental monitoring of the oil industry and will be disbanding AEMERA, the Alberta Environmental Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting Agency.

AEMERA was set up by the Conservative government in 2012 due to criticism over how the province was tracking the environmental impacts of oil sands expansion. Industry pays $50 million into the agency, while the province contributes another $28 million, now deemed to be far too expensive. A new monitoring structure will be in place by summer 2016 and will be reassessed by the auditor general within two years.
