there are no National, Provincial or Municipal Light Pollution
Policies, the Saskatchewan Light Pollution Abatement
Committee works on light pollution initiatives one at a
Our hope is to convince governments and developers to adopt
responsible lighting practices as the normal way of planning
and construction for the future. Energy costs are rising,
so one would think that it would be common to utilize
fixtures and luminaries designed to minimize energy cost.
However, this does not automatically happen, as public
institutions do not have to bear the cost of their decisions
personally. Our goal is to educate and influence the
governments and developers to minimize light pollution, light
trespass & glare in order to reduce energy use, reduce
crime, reduce graffiti and provide a safe and aesthetically
pleasing night time environment where stars can be seen and the
night sky preserved.
Saskatchewan is the Land of Living Skies. Let's keep it
that way for the other 12 hours of each day!
