LETHBRIDGE - No Drilling Lethbridge presented MLA Greg Weadick with 200 letters of
opposition to urban drilling on Friday.
They are addressed to Premier Alison Redford and the Alberta Energy Regulator
and express residents concerns with the risks associated with Goldenkey Oil's
proposed drilling project in West Lethbridge.
The group also has over 8,000 signatures on a petition that calls on the
provincial government to introduce legislation that would ban oil and gas
drilling within Lethbridge municipal boundaries.
The west side door-to-door petition campaign has been successful and the group
is now expanding to the north and south parts of the city. They will continue
getting signatures until February 15th and plans to have the petition presented
in the Alberta Legislature in March.
