Alberta's justice minister visits farms to learn more about rural crime

As many are unfortunately aware, there’s been an uptick in rural crime across the country.

Alberta’s Justice Minister, Doug Schweitzer, has decided to hit the road and talk to farmers that have been either impacted or closely affected by rural crime.

Beginning at Bragg Creek, Alta., last week, the tour will run until the end of September, focusing on rural areas with some urban stops along the way as well.

Schweitzer says that people should be able to feel safe in their own homes, which is why he felt this tour was necessary.

“This government is committed to helping keep Albertans safe, secure and protected, wherever they call home,” he says. “This includes spending time outside the province’s big cities to hear directly from people about their experiences with rural crime and their insights into it.”
