Additional opportunity for Albertans to provide property rights input

January 4, 2012 Edmonton... Albertans can now share their thoughts on property rights by filling out an online survey. The survey is one of the many tools being used by the property rights task force to gain input from Alberta landowners.

The task force, created in November by Premier Alison Redford, is chaired by Diana McQueen, Minister of Environment and Water, with Evan Berger, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development, as the vice-chair.

"We want to hear Albertans' views to ensure the Government of Alberta better understands, respects, and acknowledges landowner rights and concerns," said McQueen. "I strongly encourage all landowners to provide input."

In addition to the online survey, there are a number of other opportunities available to Albertans to provide input on property rights, including 10 community sessions taking place across the province from January 9-17.

The communities that will be visited are Grimshaw, Grande Prairie, St. Paul, Westlock, Olds, Rocky Mountain House, Brooks, Hanna, Medicine Hat, and Lethbridge.

Albertans who would like to provide input can also do so through email, traditional mail, or by calling a toll-free number. Information gathered will part of a public report to government.
