Senator Patti LaBoucane-Benson is looking to hear from Brazeau County residents about how they’ve been impacted from “low oil prices, a lack of pipelines and the potential effects of Bill C-69.”

Bill C-69 is a federal movement to impose new “environmental assessment” measures on Canada’s energy sector. It would also give the public a chance to express their views during review processes. The bill has passed through the House of Commons and is currently being discussed in the Senate.

Senator LaBoucane-Benson says the public views will give her a better understanding of how federal legislation and federal leadership affects the oil and gas industry and Alberta as a whole.

Residents can contact Brazeau County Chief Administrative Officer, Jocelyn Whaley with their feedback at [email protected], or Corporate Communications Coordinator, Ken MacInnis at [email protected].
