Red budgets lead Alberta to ponder new provincial sales tax
VanCity Buzz
Alberta's golden era sparked by the late Ralph Klein, the former premier of the province, and fuelled by the province's natural resources industry is over, for now. Worldwide oil prices have plummeted from about $100 per barrel in the summer to $50 per barrel and the ongoing price volatility could send the provincial government's revenues deeper into the red. Every $1.00 drop in the price of a barrel of oil translates into a reduction of $215 million in revenue for Alberta's government.

Report: Play-based regulation could benefit energy industry
Edmonton Journal
The Alberta Energy Regulator's innovative experiment with play-based regulation for unconventional oil and gas development could be a boon for industry and other stakeholders, says a new report. "If (play-based regulation) is adopted across the industry as a new way of regulating in the province of Alberta, it could redefine how some companies approach and plan development, how they collaborate, and how cumulative effects get managed," says the report released recently.

The future of solar energy is shining brightly
Royal City Record
The future is murky and hard to see. Until you fly right over it and see it marching past, covering the California desert. I dashed down to the States recently to visit my grandmother, uncles and aunts and various cousins, all of whom live under the charming belief that 18 degrees Celsius is "chilly." Driving around suburban Orange County for a few days, you notice that a few things are different. More palm trees, wider roads, better drivers, cheaper gas. And you notice the solar panels.
