At the Legislature:

Here are examples of positive legislation by UCP MLAs, passed or in progress, in the fall session:

Bill 216 – Protecting Alberta’s Children Act, 2017

New requirements to improve the visibility of operating tow trucks.

Bill 210- Missing Persons (Silver Alert) Amendment Act, 2017

By UCP MLA Mark Smith – this bill is passed.

As the “amber alert” system helps aid police in locating missing children, Bill 210 establishes a “silver alert” system to aid police in locating missing elderly persons.

Bill 206 – Child, Youth and Family Enhancement (Adoption Advertising) Amendment Act

By UCP MLA Leela Aheer – This bill is passed.

Makes it easier for prospective adoptive parents to find adoptable children by allowing adoption agencies to publish child profiles.

Bill 202 – Protecting Victims of Non-Consensual Distribution of Intimate Images Act

By UCP MLA Scott Cyr

Makes it easier to allow people to sue for damages if their intimate images are shared without their consent on the internet. It also allows school boards to suspend or expel an offending student. Bill 202 is an important tool in combating cyberbullying.

These are a few examples of real efforts we make on your behalf as the Official Opposition.
