Carried Unanimously

Provincial legislation can sometimes remain without revision for decades. Times change, and occasionally the need for an update becomes apparent. Community expectations, and industry practices are much different than they were years ago.

Municipalities all across Alberta are clamoring for the changes required to meet these evolving demands. But the Provincial Police Act regulates all Police activity, and only the Provincial Government can change that legislation. They recently updated the Municipal Government Act, and the time for the similar modernization of the Police Act is now.

As Vice President of the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association, Councillor Demong has taken on the task of solving this problem. With several of his fellow Council members, he is putting forward a Notice of Motion asking the City of Calgary to add its voice to the growing chorus of municipalities asking for change to the Provincial Police Act.
