    Alberta legislation will create regional planning boards

    Alberta has introduced legislation aimed at harmonizing economic growth and environmental protection.

    Bill 36, the Alberta Land Stewardship Act, tinkers with 26 different laws and puts a framework in place to assign seven regional planning boards across the province. Regional plans should be done by 2012.

    “With Bill 36, our province enters a new era of land and resource stewardship, one that meets the needs of the present generation without compromising the opportunities of the next generation,” said Sustainable Resource Development Minister Ted Morton, who tabled the bill on Monday.

    It may be a mistake to emphasize the potential power of local advisory councils, however, Green Party Leader Joe Anglin said.

          Hmm, reminds me of Frank Herbert's musings via Bene Gesserit axioms on how bureaucracy always expands to fill available energy.
