Again, for those in the back:

This has to do with ensuring ICU capability, avoiding burnout in our health care professionals, avoiding a lockdown, & valuing the lives of our ppl.

Everything else, while worth consideration, is distraction or irrelevant in the overall picture.
Unlike masks, this is not a job that can be punted down to municipalities.

We don’t have the needed authority or budgets to patch together a provincial strategy for controlling this pandemic.

In my address to the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association (#AUMA) Convention in #Calgary, I called on Jason Kenney and Municipal Affairs Minister Tracy Allard to reset the province’s broken relationship with municipalities, and invest in their economic recovery.

So far, the UCP’s approach to supporting municipalities has hovered somewhere between condescension and outright disrespect. Municipalities deserve a real plan for diversification.
This plan must engage elected leaders to act locally and grow their strengths while pivoting to new opportunities because there cannot be an economic recovery in Alberta without municipalities at the table.
