The Alberta Anomaly
It is a commonly held perception that Alberta is a business-friendly province. With little red tape, skinny regulations, modest taxes, a sizable pool of entrepreneurs, a can-do attitude, near absent unionization, political invariability, abundant resources, solid infrastructure, a reasonable cost of living, great skiing, private liquor stores, and a young, well educated workforce, it is difficult to argue against this perception. However, the same cannot be said of Alberta's laws relating to limitation periods. Published in the February 2010 issue of Canadian Lawyer as part of Bryan Haynes' regular column.
