A better, greener Alberta is possible: Let's work to make it real
Huffington Post Canada
I recently stood with thousands of other Albertans at the Alberta legislature building, the place of so many protests and rallies, to welcome our new government. I cheered as the new cabinet was introduced. We now have a former teacher as the new Minister of Education. An outspoken, hard-working feminist was named to the newly created post responsible for the Status of Women. And Alberta now has the only cabinet in Canada (and only the second in Canadian history) with equal numbers of men and women.

CBC News
Marg McCuaig-Boyd might just have the hardest job in Alberta right now. Like all the new NDP cabinet ministers, she has a steep learning curve ahead of her. But McCuaig-Boyd will also face extraordinary scrutiny as she feels her way through the next few months.

Desirable dozen: Eco-solar home tour showcases energy efficiency
Edmonton Journal
When it comes to energy-efficient homes, Edmonton is generating a powerful punch. You'll find more net-zero energy homes — homes that make as much energy over the year as they consume — in Edmonton than in any other part of Canada. "This year we counted up all the net-zero energy homes in Edmonton and found that, by far, there are more net-zero energy homes here than anywhere else in Canada," said Andrew Mills, president of the Eco-Solar Home Tour.

Eight years after Enmax announced a five-year powerplay with Edmonton's Capital Power, the province's largest natural gas power plant opened its doors recently.

Every day it is getting easier to make the argument for solar. "We've known for years that solar was the energy darling," says John Gorman, President and CEO of Canadian Solar Industries Association.
