Dear Editor,

Re: article written by Toby Malloy: Benefits of farm workplace insurance, published in The Western Producer Dec. 24

Farm workplace insurance (WCB) that Alberta government wants in place for Alberta farm workers is the worst insurance anyone could have.

Why?

WCB covers a person only on the job, not to or from work, at home, etc. It is the responsibility of any employee in anyprofession to look after having their own insurance for injury or sickness.

Employers do.

There is injury insurance that covers a person 24 hours a day at work, home, in Canada and anywhere else in the world. Even better yet, it is cheaper.

If family farms and the agriculture industry is to survive and continue to provide some of the best and cheapest food to our fellow Albertans, Canadians and other countries around the world, Bill 6 needs to die instantly.
