EDMONTON — The government of Alberta is set to unveil its climate-change strategy.

Premier Rachel Notley and Environment and Parks Minister Shannon Phillips will be on hand to discuss details about Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan during a news conference Sunday afternoon.

Earlier this month, Notley said the province’s plan will include very significant changes that will put Alberta on what she calls a progressive and balanced path forward.

“We are going to do what we think we can do to improve our record in a way that not only supports Albertans but supports Albertans for generations to come,” she said.
