      What’s your point?……………………………..?………………………………………?

    2. All ready done ( just hidden ) *** new Data from Alberta ***

      Hypertension 2262 83.3%
      Cardio-Vascular Diseases 1438 52.9%

  1. Kenny wanted it both ways, it didn’t work. Now he’s crawling and begging to be forgiven,,, both ways.

    1. Where is your sense of humour ? everyone knows …Vax does not stop transmission … everyone knows .Pass ports do not stop transmission … everyone has s seen Alberta’s new numbers everyone in Hospital and ICU have up to 3 of underlying conditions (ROFL ) …Government now sounds silly

    2. @Daniel Arcadia Kenny, like a few of them swing both ways while praying, stalling, gambling , playing hard ball and softball and of course hoping it all goes away so he and other bad leaders can go back to smiling and looking pretty.

    1. @That James Guy well not really frontline workers or nurses if you read the story. Laboratory, linen and cleaning and food prep. No nurses will be fired during the pandemic. It helps to read and not just spread misinformation

    2. @That James Guy Show me one single source because the 1000% did not fire thousands of frontline workers and that would be oddly convenient for your point if they did wouldn’t it? You’re an utter moron who gets his news from his buddies, Facebook and YouTube.

    3. both the BirdAndSwineFluWereHoaxes perpetrated by Big Pharma and WHO … if you fell for the same trick thrice (Covid) — congratulate yourself… you’reAMoron

  2. How many Albertans know that 450 nurses quit and last week a number of anaesthesiologists walked out. There is a medical crisis in Alberta and it’s not a covid crisis it’s a mismanagement of health care that’s in crisis. Mandates are causing this not the disease

  3. 0:14 just pause at that moment and ask yourself if the individual has any true confidence in anything he’s saying.

  4. In hospital with covid.—-.or—-because of covid. please clarify.

    Cases: how many are asymptomatic—–.please clarify.

    Cases: how many from actual testing and how many based on computer modelling. please clarify.

    If you look at the Gov’t of Canada website definition of what constitutes a case it’s clear that no one can say that they are not now or in the past 18 months been considered a case, regardless of being tested or not.

    1. Ask and you shall receive … New Data out of Alberta
      Condition Death Count Percent died [ underlying % death ]
      Hypertension 2262 83.3%
      Cardio-Vascular Diseases 1438 52.9%
      Renal Diseases 1372 50.5%
      Diabetes 1222 45.0%
      Dementia 1142 42.0%
      Respiratory Diseases 1102 40.6%
      Cancer 648 23.8%
      Stroke 519 19.1%
      Liver Diseases 119 4.4%
      Immuno-Deficiency Diseases 91 3.3%

  5. Do the Protected need protection from the unprotected by forcing the unprotected to take the protection that didn’t protect the protected? Think about it…

    1. @Theresa75 when you’re dying of thirst and someone offers you a glass with 8 drops of water, is it “better than nothing”?

  6. And what do the medical community care about really. Drawing some pretty big cheques while businesses (like mine) go under. Now threatening loss of jobs for the unvaccinated. Quebec is risking over 17,000 healthcare workers being let go vs the mandate. Yea that will help…..

    Bold headlines read MILITARY CALLED IN, only to really be just a handful of nurse who happen to be in the military helping out….

  7. Where was this level of outrage when Quebec and Ontario were far and away the leaders in Clovis cases.

    1. We shut down tight for 3 month lockdown adn got our cases down while Ab said covid is over on July 1 and got rid of masking. DERP

    2. @GNR 1978 Forever You do realize that we all did the lockdown last year here too in the West, right? It went on for several months.

    3. You were much slower to react to the expanding case numbers than the rest of Canada at that time but the rest of Canada didnt act like a bunch of a holes like you are now.
