Overview
What is Bill 6?
Cons
No one
can work without pay
Smaller farms that cannot pay employees
Government inspections
Rachel Notley threats
Discussion
How is a farming business similar to a city business? How are they different? Why does this affect how well the bill worked?


Do you believe that this law should be revoked completely, or should just certain aspects of it be changed?


Bill 6 was largely blamed on our premier, Rachel Notley, with farmers regularily sending her death threats. Is it fair for all of this to be blamed on Notley?
Conclusion
Discussion
Do you personally believe, in general, that this new law is a positive or negative development?


This bill came into effect in less then 21 days after being passed, an unbelievable amount of time. Not only that, but almost no farmers were consulted. How would it have changed it more farmers were asked, and it was discussed for longer?


As Rachel Gunn Reid asks in her video, should smaller family farms be under the same workplace legislation as larger commercial farms?
