The Alberta NDP quietly announced that they were changing AgTech Centre into the Farm Stewardship Centre.
Now that might not seem like much to anyone. Just a name change, right? So wrong.
AgTech Centre has been around since the '80s. It was a farm equipment and technology innovation center at the University of Lethbridge funded by the Alberta government. The focus for decades has been efficiency and soil preservation.
Well not anymore.
Since May, when the NDP took power in Alberta, changes have been happening at AgTech Centre. It got a name change to the Farm Stewardship Centre. It got some new staff with some strange roles. And now the Farm Stewardship Centre got a total mandate makeover.
The new mandate states that the "centre is undertaking projects that range from the assessment of greenhouse gas emissions to developing systems that improve water and energy use on farms".
The Agriculture Minister, Oneil Carlier, thinks that farmers in Alberta need an "environmental license" to sell their produce. Think about how crazy that is; the Minister thinks farmers need to be more ethical to sell their lentils but NDP are fine with Canada importing Venezuelan oil.
Farmers are just latest business under attack by the NDP.

The NDP budget is a disaster. Over 50,000 are out of work. Investment is fleeing the province.
