Coronavirus: Alberta premier refuses to impose restrictions to curb spike in COVID-19 cases

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney began self-isolating Wednesday afternoon after close contact with Municipal Affairs Minister Tracy Allard who received a positive test result for coronavirus.

Allard recently had a close contact test positive and has been isolating since getting the news on the weekend, the premier’s office said in a statement.

Kenney’s diagnosis comes even as the provincial government has declined to re-impose coronavirus restrictions despite a surge in COVID-19 cases.

As Heather Yourex-West reports, health officials are warning of a crisis before Christmas if more isn’t done to slow the spread of the virus.

    If you’ve taken a flu shot get ready to test positive. Is this narrative still not sinking in? Flu season follows shortly after the shots are distributed. It’s been proven that tampering with our immune system in this way causes an over reaction when subjected to the actual virus (lungs filling with fluid) Research ferret trials of corona viruses starting in the 90’s. But if you feel smarter than everyone else keep trusting the news cause they make lots of money off promoting pharmaceutical corporations that own them. What’s in the needle? Oh it’s good for you trust us! Just don’t ask the doctor if he takes it or if he’d give it to his kid. Come on, people are still letting “professionals” – people payed to push a science based on a theory that happens promote a patented drugs that destroy your organs and call it a cure. Research germ theory, they’ve never been able to prove it. Why are we afraid of a created disease, why not find who’s responsible( who payed for the research) then test all the shots you want on those that believe they’re so much smarter than the rest of us. Of course the trial was going to harm people. The biggest stupid test we’ve ever been subjected to. Good luck everyone!

    Ford will not do the same. Kenney has been fabulous during all this. He managed to keep it open and not have millions of haters..only a few.

    This is what happens, when province is run by the elected politician, and not by the “doctors”. The only province in Canada with common sense.

    I am with our Alberta Premier. Doug Ford is off the wall with his fear mongering. These numbers at flu season are not a "pandemic". The medical numbers do not indicate isolation or masks will help. We are tired of hearing COVID …. this will run its course and herd immunity should be allowed to take place. BTW I am a healthy senior and not fearful. I am not against extra measures for vulnerable individuals or those who voluntarily wish take extra measure but "my body, my choice! Treat it like the flu. Bravo Mr. Kenney.

    Jason Kenney needs to impose a mandatory mask order whenever people are in public indoors spaces across the province and have a lower limit than allowing 50 people at a time. Calgary and Edmonton imposed the mandatory mask order back on August 1 and if they had not we'd far more active covid19 cases, covid19 hospitalizations and covid19 ICU patients today than we already do. Edmonton already has a 15 person indoors limit and the rest of the province will have to do the same if people don't mask up.

    The CDC says 85% of covid cases involve people who wear masks all the time. Take the masks off its giving people a false sense of security. Notice how these useless masks have gaps under the eye area, at both sides and under the chin.
    The virus is so tiny that it goes right through the mask fibers.

    ETS is not preventing people without masks from using buses. (Eddie Robar – needs to step down if he can’t run this operation safely). Every grocery store in my area allows mask-less shoppers and we are told they don’t want to have confrontation with people who refuse. Who’s going to grow a frigging pair for the people of our city?! Put some bylaw officers at grocery stores & main transit lines. Jason – please do something that doesn’t make you appear to be parroting America’s piss poor political situation.
