Motion that Bill 20, Climate Leadership Implementation Act, be amended in schedule 1 as follows: (a) section 54 is amended by adding the following after subsection (2).
(2.1) If any record or property is provided to the Minister or an officer pursuant to section (1)(c) or (d), the Minister or officer shall give a receipt to the person who provided the record or property for any record or property provided at a location other than at the premises at which the record or property is kept.
And (b) section 58 is amended by adding the following after subsection (3):
(3.1) If any record is removed by the Minister or an officer pursuant to subsection (3), the Minister or officer shall give a receipt for the records to the person who provided the records
This amendment, Madam Chair, would require an inspector under part 3 to provide receipts for records that they take for the purpose of copying them. Receipts enable both the person being investigated and the inspector to keep accurate track of the records removed for copying. An amendment would be required to the following clauses which concern the minister or an inspector or investigator to remove records: 54(2)(b) and 58(3).
A clause like this exists in several other pieces of existing Alberta legislation; for example, the Employment Standards Code, Oil Sands Conservation Act, tobacco and smoking reduction regulations, Drug Program Act, Scrap Metal Dealers and Recycler Identification Act, Funeral Services Act, Occupational Health and Safety Act, and the Pharmacy and Drug Act
