The Alberta Provincial government under Rachael Notley is committed to tackling several issues related to energy. Corporate taxes have already been raised. A royalty review is taking place and several proposed initiatives related to the environment may also affect the petroleum industry.

The Wildrose party has raised several concerns about the direction of these measures and Leela Sharon Aheer, the Wildrose energy critic, will explore these questions from an opposition perspective. What do Albertans need to know and be vigilant about, as the NDP government proceeds?
