Council Writes Letter to Premier Notley

Lamont County Council made a motion at their regular Council meeting on December 8 to work with the ASB to write a letter to Premier Rachel Notley expressing their opinions on Bill 6.  

The letter reads, in part:

"Lamont County does support that the issue of safety being raised is critical, and is worthy of government consideration. All workers should be able to work safely at their worksite and this does not exclude the agriculture sector.

Given that many of the regulations and modifications to the current legislation are not defined or clarified, it has led to much worry and uncertainty in the agriculture community. Producers have wanted more information on how this legislation is going to affect their families and their community. There needs to be proper, concise and appropriate information provided to farm families prior to the acceptance of this bill."
