Agriculture groups say they want to be at the table as Alberta's new NDP government moves to include farm and ranch workers under provincial occupational health and safety rules. The farmer-elected agriculture groups include the Alberta barley, canola, pulse and wheat commissions. Labour Minister Lori Sigurdson says the government wants to hear more from farmers and will release information about its plans in the late fall.
