  • Bill 26 passed Third Reading in the November 24th, 2010 sitting of the Government of Alberta Legislative Assembly. We now await Royal Assent to make the Bill law. The Bill, first introduced into the assembly on October 27, 2010, amends the Mines and Minerals Act and declares coalbed methane (CBM) “to be and at all times to have been natural gas” for both Crown and freehold minerals.
