LDS Alberta Legislator Opposes Livestock Legislation

EDMONTON, ALBERTA, CANADA -- The Alberta Government recently announced changes to provincial control over intensive livestock operations. The new legislation will offer standards in the "feedlot" industry similar to those in the oil and gas sectors.

Broyce Jacobs, a member of the Church and the recently-elected Member of Legislative Assembly in the Cardston-Taber-Warner riding, has been opposing the government's initiative since it was first introduced in caucus this spring.

Jacobs believes that such state control should be left to the local levels, possibly with the country government, rather than the provincial departments.

"Even as an MLA, I have taken the position that I think land use is better served by the local government. I still believe that. I beloved it all along...the closer you can make those kind of decisions to the people, the better off it is for everybody."
