S c h m i d t In February 2011, Helen Ingram resigned from a high-level panel that had been created to establish a âworld-class environmental monitoring systemâ for Albertaâs massive bitumen extraction industryâthe oil sands or tar sands. In Canada, Dr. Ingramâs resignation was national news. Major outlets like The Globe and Mail (Wingrove 2011) and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (McIntosh 2011) recounted her concerns regarding how few scientists were on the panel and how confidentiality clauses created barriers to engagement with indigenous peoples. To opponents of Albertaâs extractive resource sector, it was yet another blow to provincial credibility (see, generally, Black et al. 2014). In the years prior to the panelâs creation, several scientific studies had revealed serious flaws in Albertaâs environmental monitoring system (e.g., Kelly et al. 2009, 2010). And barely a month before the panel was announced, Albertaâs Regional Aquatic Monitoring Program (RAMP) had been excoriated for its inability to detect regional or cumulative effects of oil sands activities, to establish baseline data, or to collect and compare data for environmental impact assessments
