Alberta town endorses community-developed policy saying no to coal mining in Rockies

BY THE CANADIAN PRESS, May 25, 2022 5:01 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

A southern Alberta town has endorsed a community-developed policy that bans new coal exploration and coal mines in the Rocky Mountains.

The Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society says in a news release that High River has joined 30 organizations to endorse the document called ``A Coal Policy for Alberta _ 2022 and Beyond.'

The society says the document provides details on how to address concerns Albertans have related to coal development.

Two years ago, the provincial government revoked a policy that had protected areas from coal mining, but a public outcry forced the government to reverse course.
