The Honourable Mr. Ron Stevens, QC
Minister of Justice and Attorney General

The Honourable Mr. Greg Melchin,
Minister Seniors and Community Support Services

Dear Sirs:

Personal Directives Act, Powers of Attorney Act

We ask that your government legislate that all enacted Personal Directives and Powers of Attorney be registered with the provincial government.

The present legislation allows estate theft with impunity. We perceive this to be a most serious and even pressing matter. Monies/estates have been stolen by those who were placed in a position of trust by this legislation. Presently, this is a hidden crime.

We must safeguard vulnerable Alberta citizens from predation.

Thank you. We shall be awaiting your reply and be grateful to be in receipt of such reply by the 20th of February, 2008.
