Repealing Bill 6, replacing it with the Farm Freedom and Safety Act
Shortly after being elected, the NDP rammed through major changes to tens of thousands of farmers and ranchers without consultation.
It led to unprecedented convoys and protests from the tens of thousands of Albertans who put food on our table.
The NDP failed to listen to their concerns and rammed Bill 6 through the legislature.
We listened to our farmers and ranchers.
Three years ago, tens of thousands of farmers, ranchers, and other concerned community members took part in province-wide demonstrations. Their rallying call: ‘Kill Bill 6.’— Jason Kenney (@jkenney) March 12, 2019
The NDP ignored them. We will not.
We will repeal Bill 6.https://t.co/jj1AmsvYTK pic.twitter.com/bsUR9PlQzd
We promised to repeal Bill 6 and replace it with the Farm Freedom and Safety Act (FFSA) and real consultation.
And that’s exactly what we did.
Unlike the NDP, we consulted directly with our farm community.
Alberta’s government will repeal and replace the NDP’s failed Bill 6 from 2015.— Devin Dreeshen (@DevinDVote) July 12, 2019
Now until the end of August @youralberta will consult directly with farmers across Alberta to develop the Farm Freedom and Safety Act. #CdnAg #abpoli #ableg pic.twitter.com/jHmGrwPn9x
What was the NDP’s response? They accused Alberta’s farmers of not being concerned enough about safety for their workers.

Thankfully, in December 2019 the Farm Freedom and Safety Act passed into law.
Promise made. Promise kept.
