    Alberta judge rules recreational pot use no grounds for firing - NUPGE
    Casual pot use a disability: Alberta judge - By Sarah O'Donnell, CanWest News Service
    EDMONTON - An Alberta judge has ruled that a construction company discriminated against a man when it fired him from an oilsands project after his pre-employment drug screening tested positive for marijuana.

    The decision could place new legal limits on when workers can be tested for drugs.

    "It is important for all workers," said Leanne Chahley, an Edmonton labour lawyer who regularly represents unions.
