The Government today announced that they will pass this legislation before the end of next week. They are proposing an amendment as a result of farmers from across Alberta taking the Government to task. Surely there must be more opportunity for the Government to learn even more and to adopt some even more sound advice from Alberta’s farmers and ranchers. While the proposed amendment may take some steps to ensure that family farms are protected, the Government continues to miss the point that they have an opportunity to make excellent legislation that everyone can support and that will truly enhance protection for workers. The NDP Government needs to slow down, listen to Alberta’s farmers and ranchers and to work with us to make this legislation actually help our farmers.
We are very proud of Jacquie Fenske former Progressive Conservative MLA for Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville for helping to organize the rallies. They have at least got the NDP’s attention.
