Helpful Guidelines For No-nonsense Methods For Dangerous Goods

Like some of the legislation written by Alberta governments, the five pages that make up Bill 6 contain almost no plain language. The proposed law is largely a long series of amendments and repeals to other pieces of legislation. Part of the problem, the Premier said, was that the bill did not clearly state that family farms without paid workers would be exempt. “It was a mistake that our intentions and these limitations were not included in the text of the bill,” Ms. Notley said last week. “They were always intended to be introduced in regulation. Between what was explicitly stated, and what was intended, fear and miscommunication has filled the gap. I take responsibility for that.” However, with the Premier facing the first major challenge to her government’s legislative agenda and with thousands of farmers and most of the provincial opposition calling for the bill to be cancelled, Ms. Notley has stood firm.
