Government Finally Protects Castle Area

CALGARY, AB (September 4, 2015): Dr. David Swann welcomed the government’s announcement that they would boost protections for the Castle area in southwest Alberta.

“This marks a victory of many years of work,” says Swann. “The protection of Castle area is vital to safeguarding our waterways, and I am pleased that action is being taken.”

Alberta Liberals have long advocated for better protection for the Castle area, and Swann raised this matter in a recent letter to the environment minister.

“I must offer my special congratulations to the Alberta Wilderness Association and the Bert Riggall foundation who worked tirelessly to protect this area,” says Swann. “This is a victory for Albertans.”
