Shepherd said Alberta’s people looked to Kenny and his government for leadership, “instead, we got an Assistant Secretary who says the UCP’s plan is” wait-and-see “while they all bear the brunt.”

“So we are waiting to see where this threshold will be pushed to our limits and then we gradually reduce more activities in this way,” said Luoan.
After the video began circulating online, Luoan posted to Facebook to say he was wrong to suggest that the government waits for hospitals to be full.
“The government, on the advice of experts from public health officials like Dr. Henshaw, is making evidence-based decisions to avoid reaching this point – a goal that we all support.” “I’m really sorry for any confusion about my statement,” Luan said, explaining that he is not involved in the decision Regarding new restrictions or hospital capacity.
Calgary Mayor Nhid Ninche called on the county government to “take bold action” immediately and encouraged people to keep up with precautions.
