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
"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."
