Brad Watson has learned there are proposed amendments to the Navigation Protection Act under Fisheries and Oceans. “I’ve since learned there is a list of rivers that have been taken off the list for needing studies as if they were navigable rivers. Battle River is one that has been taken off the list.”
It will become effective once the proposal is passed.
Immigrant women in Alberta
Coun. Loanna Gulka recently attended the Central Alberta Immigrant Women’s Association launch and she feels there is potential for more health professionals in the province.
The organization has started an economic strategy with a three-year funding commitment from the federal government.
Many of the women in the organization spoke at the launch.
“It was an eye-opener to me. We have women in central Alberta that are registered nurses, dentists, doctors and they’re working as child care providers and janitors because they can’t get certified,” she explained.
The program has just begun and Gulka looks forward to the outcome of the strategy.
