Wildrose statement on unanimous support for family friendly legislature motion
Today, Wildrose House Leader and Members’ Services Committee Member Nathan Cooper released the following statement on the committee’s all-party unanimous support for a motion to make the Alberta Legislature more family friendly:
“I am heartened to see that MLAs are willing to work across party lines in supporting the Wildrose motion to make Alberta’s Legislature a more inclusive and family friendly place to work.
“The motion outlines common sense proposals, based on best practices from other jurisdictions, that if implemented will ensure we meet or exceed standards from jurisdictions around the world.
“We look forward to the work that will be done by the Members’ Services Subcommittee that was created today in developing actionable policies to create family friendly policies and remove barriers for women in politics.”
