The Town of Rocky Mountain House is sending a letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau regarding the current state of the oil and gas industry.

The letter asks for clarification on Bill C-69 and expresses concern over the impact the bill has on pipeline development.

Due to recent rallies held in communities across Canada showing support for the oil and gas sector, the Town is requesting a meeting with the Prime Minister to discuss how Alberta can work with the federal government to promote Alberta’s economy.

Mayor Tammy Burke says, “We stand 100 percent behind the oil and gas industry in this town and in this province. It’s a life style for many in Alberta.”

A copy of the full letter can be read below:
