Were Jason Kenney captain of the Titanic instead of Premier of Alberta, he would have effectively made the decision to steer full speed into the iceberg. Having decided economic livelihood trumps actual human life, the government has done the bare minimum (his words, not mine), to control Covid19 […]
Too often I see responses like “only X is at risk for severe outcomes” to Covid numbers. It’s not completely untrue, even though it is a shocking dismissal of our neighbours. Alberta is seeing a steady rise in infections, hospitalizations, and admittance to intensive care units. In the […]
For months the UCP has steadfastly insisted that the spread of Covid19 would not take precedence over the protection of the economy. Through the course of the summer where distancing was easier and prior to the return of school and more regular work schedules, that approach was moderately […]
Alberta’s government communications regarding Covid19 have taken a dark and vile turn as the failure of the government to impose meaningful control measures has seen Alberta skyrocket to the top of the country in terms of active and per capita infections.

Alberta is certainly a leader in Canada, but not in the way the UCP had likely envisioned. With two consecutive days over 1500 cases, including surpassing Ontario and Quebec in absolute numbers of new and active cases, this wasn’t what the UCP hoped their personal responsibility mantra would […]
Kenney did *something* but warns he might have to do more if personal responsibility doesn’t work this time
