Landowners Against Bills 19, 36, 50
Check out this very informative website about the Alberta Government’s recent passing of Bill 19 – the Land Assembly Project Area Act; Bill 36 – the Alberta Land Stewardship Act; and Bill 50 – the Electric Statutes Amendment Act, 2009.
This legislation has strengthened the Alberta Government’s ability to determine and control what takes place on both public and private land to the point where private land owners’ rights have been seriously diminished. For example, Bill 19 gives the Alberta Government the authority to designate your private land as a high voltage power line route, and gives you no right or opportunity to do anything about it. Bill 50 also has taken away the rights of Albertans to have any say on whether or not specific new high voltage lines are even necessary.
So check out this new website for all the details on these 3 Bills.
