Bowing to unrelenting pressure from Conservation groups and the general public, the Alberta Government will allow the proposed new Alberta Parks Act, Bill 29, to ‘die on the order paper’. While killing Bill 29 is supposedly the result of some backroom political trade-off, someone in government obviously recognized the Bill’s shortcomings. Minister Cindy Ady said the province will re-introduce the legislation next year. Thanks to everyone who took the time to campaign against this poorly conceived piece of legislation.
