The Alberta government has withdrawn its request to the Alberta Utilities Commission to suspend consideration of the Heartland Transmission Project application.

The Alberta government has withdrawn its request to the Alberta Utilities Commission to suspend consideration of the Heartland Transmission Project application.

The AUC will release its decision on this application on Tuesday, Nov. 1, at which time it will be posted on the AUC website, at www.auc.ab.ca.

The Alberta government made a significant policy U-turn when Premier Alison Redford publicly contradicted her new energy minister's decision to change the overall approach to the construction of the Heartland transmission project.

Premier Redford made a statement at a press conference on Oct. 21 that the application for Heartland transmission project is still moving forward as planned.

About three hours earlier, the Alberta Utilities Commission (AUC) made to suspend the review process and hearings on the Heartland transmission project, as well as the Western Alberta transmission line and Eastern Alberta transmission line.

Currently, it is not clear how such a miscommunication in public policy occurred and whether this will impact a pending decision on the project.

Initially, there was some confusion, because it appeared the government was making a major policy change
