Bill 46 outrage fuels protest

A protest against a controversial overhaul of the province’s energy regulator drew nearly 100 people to the steps of the legislature this afternoon.

The rally attracted a noisy group of landowners, environmentalists and other opponents of contentious Bill 46 despite icy temperatures and frigid winds.

A busload of about 20 people from southern Alberta attended the rally. Many carried placards and chanted “Kill Bill 46!”

“Ed Stelmach has the audacity to tell us that this new bill protects our rights,” Joe Anglin, one of the event’s organizers, told the crowd. “It removes our rights all together.”
