Wall to tout clean coal in Washington trip

--

EDMONTON - Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall says he's going to Washington next week to not only urge U.S. lawmakers approve the Keystone XL pipeline, but also to highlight green initiatives taking place in his province.

"We need to tell that story," Wall said Wednesday after meeting in Edmonton with Alberta Premier Alison Redford.

He said Saskatchewan, like the U.S., is heavily reliant on coal-generated electricity, but said his province has invested $1.4 billion in a clean-coal project near Estevan.

Redford has also emphasized that Alberta is doing its part to reduce the climate-changing greenhouse gases that result from carbon intensive projects like the oilsands.

She has stressed that Alberta is the only North American jurisdiction to tax heavy emitters. Alberta is also investing millions of dollars in clean-energy projects and beefing up environmental monitoring of the oilsands.

Critics, however, have said the pace of development is outstripping these measures.

Redford reiterated her pitch in a guest column Tuesday in the nationally circulated USA Today newspaper.

Wall has been busy as well.

Last month, he and 10 U.S. state governors wrote a letter to U.S. President Barack Obama urging he "swiftly" approve the $7-billion pipeline in an environmentally sustainable way to lift North American economy and create jobs. …
