    But your entire lifestyle has been based on ‘abstract political principles’! Don’t stop now…

    Our politicians need to go. Imagine if the virus was actually deadly (more than 0.1% lethality rate). They have completely botched the job and it shows how incompetent they really are.

      Go volunteer as a porter at hospital. Let’s see how strong your convictions truly are Susan!!

    • 0.1% doesnt sound like much until you apply it to a large number , like the entire population . Do you realize how many dead that equals out of the entire population not to mention the amount who end up with serious lifelong health issues after Covid ?

      @cindy<- found the multiple-account bot... funny, exact same comment as Jonathan Edward !!!

  3. YAAAY… more debt for myself, my kids and my kids kids…

  4. “abstract political principles” don’t stop covid-19. I couldn’t agree more. Also, I have two sisters whose names are Florida and Texas. They seem pretty credible to me.

  5. How do you explain covid rates dropping in florida and texas? no masks or any restrictions at all.

  6. Take a Pay freeze if you stand by this so much.

    I have an abstract idea, how about I send you a box to pack up your stuff Kenney? I voted for you…

    The election is not far off.

      Are u pushing to end covid restrictions?

    • @Jonathan Edward I’m “pushing” for common sense…This is now a numbers game of ‘new cases’.
      What happened to the 3.4% death rate which was predicted back in March of 2020?

      @Mr. M4N 0.1% doesnt sound like much until you apply it to a large number , like the entire population . Do you realize how many dead that equals out of the entire population not to mention the amount who end up with serious lifelong health issues after Covid ?
      Are u volunteering as tribute?
      Not to mention when 2 variants mutating into 1 new one. U are approaching this like understand the virus. U do not which is why u are so arrogant asserting ” common sense” when u have not provided (1) logical argument.

    Abstract politicians don’t stop COVID-19.

  9. He is such a bad liar. For a politician I expected better…

  10. This is waaaay beyond you Mr. Kenney, It’s ‘Globalism’

    =) πŸ˜‰ =) πŸ˜‰ =) wink wink…

  11. Once everyone in Parliament and the Legislature drops their income to 2000 a month, then I’ll take them seriously. As if any of them commiserate with the general population while this entire time their six-figure salaries have been untouched. Between this goof and the crayon eater in Rideau Hall I’m at my wits end lol

    OMG. He’s using buzzphrases to tell Alberta off. GFY Kenney. You are a disgrace.

    Every politician should take a pay freeze when they enforce lockdowns.

  16. Let’s all enjoy Kenny’s great kakistocracy..

  17. Shame on Kenney, blackmailing Alberta’s. The GOV shouldn’t be running healthcare. They are completely incompetent.

      When u put a lawyer in place as the Health Minister in order to gut the system what can u expect!
      I guess u chose to leave out that detail. LOL

    “We’ve done everything we can to expand the capacity of that healthcare system” – Yeah. Ok.

    • Aaron Tirmanator | April 12, 2021 at 6:19 PM | Reply

      @Devin Forbes All other developed countries have privatized healthcare. (Not fully privatized) and they don’t have any supply issues that we have. We have no free market and we end up depending on India, a third world country, for vaccines…

    • Aaron Tirmanator | April 12, 2021 at 6:19 PM | Reply

      @Devin Forbes Our government run healthcare is trash.

    • Devin Forbes | April 12, 2021 at 6:39 PM | Reply

      @Aaron Tirmanator – All other developed countries do not have privatized healthcare.

      @Devin Forbes America does. That’s not helping them.

      @Dwayne Wladyka Yeah, they’re one of the few. And yeah, it sucks.

  19. But schedule surgery wait times are down since COVID started…
