This Week In Alberta:

  • The legislature will convene today to continue working through their busy spring agenda. No new government bills are currently scheduled to be introduced this week, however, the NDP will introduce a private member's bill - the Pension Protection Act - on Monday.

  • Bill 15, Bill 16, Bill 17, Bill 20, and Bill 21 are all in Second Reading, while Bill 2, Bill 4, Bill 7, Bill 18, and Bill 19 are all at Committee of the Whole. Details about each bill are available here.

  • The government will also make a final decision early this week about when Alberta will move to Stage 2 of the province's relaunch plan. It had previously been announced that Stage 2 would happen no earlier than Friday, June 19th but, with the number of acute care beds designated for COVID reduced from 2,800 to 1,000 and only 4% of those 1,000 being used, our bet would be on Monday, June 15th instead.
