Yesterday, I posted about the intrusive, bureaucratic nature of Bill 6, a bill which the provincial NDP feel is necessary- even though they don’t know why. Today, I want to encourage everyone who reads this, no matter how you feel about the bill, to exercise their democratic rights and tell their Member of the Legislative Assembly what their thoughts are about Bill 6 (and while you’re doing that, throw in your comment on the Carbon Tax initiative as well).
This link lists, alphabetically, the names and emails of every MLA in Alberta. Even if your MLA is NDP (ESPECIALLY if your MLA is a member of the NDP), please send them something stating the importance of making amendments for farms and ranches in Bill 6.
Additionally, I would encourage you to contact the Premier, Rachel Notley, with the same concerns:
Finally, this survey has been posted to the Alberta Government website. Please take 20 minutes of your day and fill it out to tell the MLA’s that Bill 6 is not appropriate as it is written and it must be amended.
When writing emails or making calls, be sure to have talking points about what you do and do not like about Bill 6. Perhaps, if enough of us participate and contact our MLA’s, we may be able to make the appropriate amendments to protect the privacy and autonomy of farming and ranching families all across the province. Please, ensure your children can learn how to move cattle, drive tractor, and combine before they need to take over the farm. Educating the next generation of farmers is essential to the perpetuity of farming and ranching in Alberta.
PLEASE TELL THE PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT TO STAY OUT OF OUR FAMILIES!
