The Alberta government has launched a review of its labour laws to mixed reactions in the construction industry.

Employment and Immigration minister Thomas Lukaszuk has asked two Edmonton lawyers to look at the current code and its impact on the province’s competitiveness.

The Christian Labour Association of Canada (CLAC) is one of the groups advocating for reform.
