This is great news for damage prevention across Canada. Federal damage prevention legislation will also be a big help in furthering our goal to introduce provincial damage prevention legislation in Alberta in the near future, helping to provide a model for provincial damage prevention legislation throughout Canada.
We are working on our legislation outreach plan and we will send you an update in the next couple weeks on how you can reach your MPs and request support for the bill.
