EDMONTON, AB (May 20, 2016): Wildrose Shadow Agriculture Minister Rick Strankman today released the following statement on the six working groups announced for Bill 6 consultation:
“Wildrose will carefully review the panelists announced today to ensure that they properly represent the farmers and ranchers of our province.
“The NDP government continues to be vague on details and timelines, as well as the compliance that will be necessary for farmers and ranchers while regulations for Bill 6 are developed.
“I continue to have concerns that any positive work that may come out of consulting with actual farmers and ranchers will be superseded by the NDP government on this legislation.
“Wildrose will continue to stand up for the farmers and ranchers of Alberta.”
