Oil company Kaiser Exploration Ltd. has suspended construction of its sweet crude well in northwest Calgary after residents rose-up against the project.
The company says there are already wells operating in Calgary, Edmonton, Medicine Hat and the list goes on…Critics are calling for new rules on drilling near neighbourhoods.
Valid concerns or blocking business? Is an emergency response plan in-place? Can urban Albertans mix with oil companies?
Joining us to debate drilling near neighbourhoods, Ned Beattie, General Manager of Kaiser Exploration Ltd.; Erin Stabbler, President of the Rocky Ridge/Royal Oak Community Association; and Richard Dixon, Executive Director of the Centre for Applied Business Research in Energy and the Environment at the University of Alberta.
