Synopsis

In probing the impact of Alberta's powerful oil lobby on the

health of democracy in the province, contributors to the volume engage

with an ongoing discussion of the erosion of political liberalism in

the West. In addition to examining energy policy and issues of

government accountability in Alberta, they explore the ramifications of

oil dependence in areas such as Aboriginal rights, environmental

policy, labour law, women's equity, urban social policy, and the

arts. If, as they argue, reliance on oil has weakened democratic

structures in Alberta, then what of Canada as whole, where the

short-term priorities of the oil industry continue to shape federal

policy? In Alberta, the New Democratic Party is in a position to

reverse the democratic deficit that is presently fuelling political and

economic inequality. The findings in this book suggest that, to

revitalize democracy, provincial and federal leaders alike must find

the courage to curb the influence of the oil industry on

governance.
