Province introduces poppy-wearing legislation

The province has introduced legislation today to protect the rights of workers to wear a poppy.

Labour relations minister Don McMorris said in a media release that “Providing the right for workers to wear a poppy while in the workplace is a way to honour the sacrifice veterans and their families have made.”

The legislation provides provincially regulated workers the right to wear a poppy recognized by the Royal Canadian Legion from Nov. 1-11 annually.

Similar legislation has been introduced in Ontario and Manitoba.
