Estevan – Today, Dr. Robert Kitchen, Member of Parliament for Souris – Moose Mountain, welcomed the Honourable Ed Fast, P.C., M.P., Shadow Minister for Environment and Climate Change, and John Barlow, M.P., Shadow Minister for Employment, Workplace Development and Labour, to Estevan.

While in Estevan, they will be touring the Boundary Dam Power Plant and Carbon Capture Facility, as well as visiting the Aquistore CO2 storage site. They will also take a tour of the carbon capture test facility at the Shand Power Station, and later on, tour Westmoreland Coal mine. The MP’s will also meet with Deep Earth Energy Production while in Estevan.

“This is a great opportunity to show MP’s Fast and Barlow all of the great work that SaskPower and others have done with carbon capture at Boundary Dam,” said Kitchen. “I have always felt that carbon capture and storage is the innovative, green solution that we need to combat emissions while still keeping our power plants in use for their functional lifespan,” concluded Kitchen.
