“Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan, along with our modernized royalty framework, repositions Alberta as one of the world’s most responsible, forward-looking energy producers. While in Houston, I will make sure the world knows Alberta is serious about attracting new investment, serious about combating climate change, and serious about making sure our energy industry grows and prospers.”
