Alberta government creates pair of industry panels to help reduce regulatory red tape
Alberta is moving into the next phase of its plan to cut regulatory red tape.
Premier Jason Kenney’s government has announced that two industry panels tasked with advising it on redundant and ineffectual rules will begin meeting next week.
One panel is composed of oil and gas leaders and the other is made of up people in the tourism and hospitality industries.
Grant Hunter, the associate minister in charge of the file, will chair both panels.
The oil and gas panel includes Tim McMillan, the head of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers.
Dave Kaiser, president of the Alberta Hotel and Lodging Association, is one of 10 members on the tourism and hospitality panel.
