Alberta Federation of Agriculture questions government move

The Alberta Federation of Agriculture wants to know why the province is dissolving the Agriculture Operation Practices Act Practice Review Committee.

The move would eliminate “the pool of farmers and ranchers who can be designated to hold an inquiry should there be a nuisance complaint lodged against a farming operation,” said federation president Lynn Jacobson.

While the committee has not been called to action in several years, his organization doesn’t want to see “only government staff or non-farmers/ranchers being appointed to judge an agricultural operation,” he said.
