Alberta Liberal MLA David Swann made the following statement on the 18th Annual Farm Workers Awareness Week:
“For the 18th Annual Farm Worker’s Awareness Week I want to take a moment to recognize the incredible importance of Alberta’s agriculture industry. Not only is it a key part of Alberta’s economic engine, but also our province’s identity as well.
“At the core of that industry are the industrious farm workers who put food on tables in Alberta and across the world. Their vital contribution to society is undeniable.
“I am proud of the strides Alberta has taken to modernize and improve the health and safety and guarantee compensation for injury for paid farm workers and I am committed to continuing to push for further progress on the long-awaited regulations.
“I encourage all Albertans to take time this week to learn more about the contribution of farm workers in our province.”
