Critical Alberta Issues in the Post-Klein Era

With an overheated booming provincial economy, key challenges face the new Conservative Stelmach Team, including:

The need for alternative energy programs,

Long term planning for royalties and when the resources run out,

Affordable housing for an expanding population,

Oil sands and Kyoto: is there any reconciliation of benefit to Alberta?, and

The democratic deficit: can we expect more of the same?

Brian Mason, leader of the provincial New Democratic Party, will provide his perspective on these issues and how they should be addressed.
