    Top court asked to settle worker drug-testing battle - By Gordon Jaremko, Edmonton Journal
    A commission panel ruled that electrician Donald Luka was not discriminated against when he lost a job with Lockerbie & Hole Inc. for failing a marijuana test required to work on a Syncrude contract.

    Industry is following an 84-page drug and alcohol code devised by the Construction Owners Association of Alberta, which includes virtually all sponsors of large projects.

    The document, titled the "Canadian model for providing a safe workplace," lays out standardized tests, employer and wage-earner rights, and formal legal and medical justifications for enforcing rules against recreational or habitual use of intoxicating substances.

    Desire for the law to catch up with industry has spread beyond the oilsands. On the conventional drilling side of the oil and gas industry, the Petroleum Services Association of Canada wants the province to stop waiting for the courts.
