Environment Minister Shannon Phillips just a moment ago announced the completed five person climate change panel chaired by University of Alberta professor Andrew Leach.
The five panelists are:
– Andrew Leach
– Gord Lambert, President of GRL Collaboration and Sustainability (and formerly of Suncor)
– Linda Coady, Chief Sustainability Officer, Enbridge Inc.
– Stephanie Cairns, Principal of Wrangellia Consulting, and Pembina Institute Board Member
– Angela Adams, Director of Education, Unifor, and Trustee, Fort McMurray Public School District
Notably, two of the four new additions come from the oil and gas industry.

The goal for the panel is to have a document outlining an “architecture” for a renewed Provincial policy towards coping with climate change.
The timeline, arguably too soon, is to have the document ready at the end of October and before Premier Rachel Notley goes to Paris in November for the UN World Climate Summit.
Minister Phillips also emphasized that the climate change panel will be working closely with the royalty review panel.
Phillips says climate change panel will work "very closely" with royalty review panel. #ableg
