    Premier warns feds to back off oilsands
    UPDATED: 2007-02-14 02:21:43 MST


    By DOUG MCINTYRE, SUN MEDIA

    Alberta Premier Ed Stelmach had a stern message for the federal government yesterday -- hands off the oilsands.

    Stelmach vowed to protect Alberta's oil and gas industry from federal intrusion, adding lowering the boom on the oilsands would devastate the provincial and national economies.

    "There has been talk, especially by some Liberals ... of a moratorium on the development of Alberta's oilsands," said Stelmach during a speech to the Rotary Club of Calgary at the Fairmont Palliser Hotel.

    "Those are not decisions to be made by politicians in Eastern Canada -- these are resources that are owned by Albertans and the Alberta government is the trustee."

    Any move to cap oilsands development would reflect an environmental file that has become "a runaway train," said Stelmach, with federal parties racing to outdo each other to produce a workable emissions-cutting plan.

    He blasted the idea of an international emissions trade as "hot-air credits" that give industrially developing countries such as China a free pass to continue polluting.
