Tory MLA slams Ted Morton
By RENATO GANDIA, SUN MEDIA
Tory MLA Denis Ducharme is slamming Sustainable Resource Minister Ted Morton’s decision to allow seismic tests by a Calgary-based company on Marie Lake, one of Alberta’s remaining pristine bodies of water.
He’s also “very disappointed” that he found out about the decision through the media.
“I found that his lack of professional courtesy to me was unacceptable,” Ducharme, of the Bonnyville-Cold Lake constituency, told Sun Media. “I’m certainly going to be having a discussion with the premier regarding this decision.”
Ducharme suggested Morton’s hands may be tied by the province’s oil development policy.
“Maybe there are some changes that have to be done,” he said. “Unfortunately, Mr. Morton did not show leadership.”
