British Columbia oil and gas landowners to have "Farmer's Advocate"

In response to landowner concerns about the growing oil and gas industry in British Columbia, the provincial government has created the "Northeast B.C. Rural Residents Independent Land Information & Advocacy Office" or "Farmers' Advocate"). The stated purposes of the Advocate are to: disseminate information; resolve problems; emphasize facilitation and negotiation; and provide an effective, independent "gateway" to existing organizations with mandates relating to rural landowners.

A Request for Proposals by candidates interested in the Farmers' Advocate position closed February 11, 2010.
