Former Tory labour minister Thomas Lukaszuk enters farm safety fray with ‘Bill 6 Taskforce’

Former Alberta Progressive Conservative deputy premier and labour minister Thomas Lukaszuk, two lawyers and three accountants have formed a “Bill 6 Implementation Advisory Taskforce” that Lukaszuk says in a letter to farmers and operators of other agricultural enterprises can help ensure the NDP Government’s controversial Enhanced Protection for Farm and Ranch Workers Act is implemented in a way that minimizes “the damage inflicted by Bill 6.”

In an electronic letter to about 50 officials of Alberta agricultural operations and producers’ associations, a copy of which has been obtained by AlbertaPolitics.ca, Lukaszuk described the intentions of the group made up of himself, lawyer John M. Hope of the firm Duncan Craig LLP, lawyer Dwayne Chomyn of the firm Neuman Thompson, and Chartered Accountants Scott Dickson, Gord Tait and Michelle O’Brien-Moran, all of MNP LLP, a national accounting firm based in Calgary.
