EDMONTON — Alberta Premier Rachel Notley has told the province’s business leaders the energy industry is critical to the province’s economy but must “clean up its environmental act.”

Notley delivered the keynote address Tuesday night at the Alberta Chambers of Commerce, acknowleding the fiscal challenges facing the province but also sounding a note of optimism about its future.

Notley says while her government wants to do more to diversify the economy, there’s no doubt that oil and gas will play a leading role.

But she says energy-producing jurisdictions such as Alberta must help address the global problem of climate change.

She says if Alberta doesn’t get its act together, a solution will be imposed by others, including markets that will insist the products they buy are mined and processed responsibly.
