A group of mounted ranchers read an open letter of protest to Alberta's Premier in Calgary Monday.

Ian Tyson with the Pekisko Group says the E-U-B is not doing it's job.

"We've got to get a regulatory system that's going to do something about the environment", he says, "It can't just be about oil and gas oil and gas all the time, indiscriminate drilling, you know someones got to take care of the environment, the E-U-B just isn't doing it".

The Pekisko group had applied for status in an upcoming hearing for a Claresholm area well.

The E-U-B denied the application and only landowners adjacent to wells will have a voice at hearings.
