    The 2016 Western Canadian DIRT Report has been released and is available at the ABCGA website.

    Highlights:

    The largest number of reported incidents occurred in June with 603 reported events. The next highest months were August with 561 reported events and September with 534 reported events.

    A significant number of incidents were reported during winter months: with 277 reported events from January to February and 562 reported events from November to December, for a total of 839 reported events during winter.

    Almost 42 per cent of all reported incidents (1,824 reported events) occurred in the region of Edmonton, and 1,217 of those occurred in the municipal region of Leduc, which accounted for almost 28 per cent of all reported incidents in Alberta during 2016.

    One out of every five incidents was reported as causing a service disruption, however more than 60 per cent of reported events listed the occurrence of a service disruption as "unknown."

    The largest number of reported incidents occurred during construction and development work, with 1,797 reported events, which was followed by 1,711 reported events occurring during street work.

    Great news for the CCGA on Oct. 31! The Speaker of the House, Hon. Geoff Regan, passed his ruling on Bill S-229, allowing the bill to proceed to first reading.

    For more information on the Speaker's Ruling on Bill S-229, click here.

    This is great news for damage prevention across Canada. Federal damage prevention legislation will also be a big help in furthering our goal to introduce provincial damage prevention legislation in Alberta in the near future, helping to provide a model for provincial damage prevention legislation throughout Canada.

    We are working on our legislation outreach plan and we will send you an update in the next couple weeks on how you can reach your MPs and request support for the bill.

    If you would like to read the Speaker's Ruling, a full transcription is available to read on openparliament.ca
