Alberta premier meets with U.S. ambassador to discuss ‘dirty’ oil

CALGARY — Premier Ed Stelmach admits Alberta doesn’t have a lot of wiggle room to satisfy environmentalists and American politicians who don’t want “dirty” oil from the oilsands.

The U.S. government is drafting a law that could limit American agencies from using oilsands fuel because of the large volume of emissions created when it’s produced.

Stelmach met with U.S. Ambassador David Wilkins in Calgary on Monday.

After the meeting, Stelmach said he will work with Wilkins to bring more political leaders from the United States to Alberta to get a first-hand look at what the province is doing to reduce greenhouse gases.

Stelmach said carbon capture is the quickest way to deal with the issue.

He also said the important thing is to continue to get the message out to opponents because there is a lot of misinformation about Alberta’s environmental record.
