Jason Kenney and the UCP have failed to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic properly. The Premier has a duty to keep Albertans safe. Instead, he went missing as the second wave of the deadly virus descended on the province.
We all want to avoid closures, but Jason Kenney is failing to take action that will help keep Albertans safe and our economy running.
