One of the topics discussed with the MLA was the Species at Risk act.
Fildebrandt’s home electoral district of Strathmore – Brooks just saw one of it’s major employers, Western Feedlots, close the doors and he wouldn’t take a chance to blame the Agriculture and Forestry Minister, Oneil Carlier.
Other items discussed were the upcoming minimum wage increase and the higher gas prices locally, something Fildebrandt wasn’t aware of.
