Not everyone is happy about the government’s plan to protect the health and safety of farm and ranch workers. A Facebook group called Farmers Against NDP Bill 6 claims the plan would kill family farms. (Note that on Nov. 24, a 10-year-old boy was killed at a farm when the forklift he was driving toppled into a ditch.) Agriculture organizations say they support improving farm safety, but have concerns about how the new rules would work and how they might affect the bottom line.
