13 Mar 2013 Pictures: Alberta Legislature Visit a Huge Success!

On Tuesday, 18 representatives of Alberta ARPA chapters and ARPA Canada visited the Alberta Legislature in Edmonton and met with a dozen MLAs and cabinet ministers to discuss a range of issues that are close to our hearts. We can report with thankfulness that these meetings resulted in blessings beyond what we could have hoped for. Meetings included Justice Minister and Attorney General Jonathan Denis, Associate Minister of Finance Kyle Fawcett, Minister of Environment Diana McQueen, and Associate Minister of Accountability Don Scott. The top issues of discussion were reforming Alberta's Human Rights Code, parental authority in education, abortion funding, and children working on farms. One MLA was so impressed with a meeting with reps from Southern Alberta ARPA that he took the report that was prepared for him, photocopied it for the other MLAs, and introduced it in the Legislature that afternoon, urging his colleagues to read it.

13 Aug 2012 ARPA’s Host MP Stephen Woodworth – Video & Pictures

And as Christians we have the moral obligation to do all we can to change those unjust laws." (Mr. Woodworth, speaking to the audience in Lethbridge Alberta).
