1. Be VERY clear, Jason Kenney is lying through his teeth about this.

Withdrawing from the Canada Pension Plan would cost Alberta $133 Billion.

2. That’s TRIPLE the current provincial debt. Alberta would go from having the lowest debt to among the highest.

Why so much? Because doing so requires approval of 2/3 of the provinces. #ableg #abpoli #alberta #calgary #edmonton #yyc #yeg #yql
3. The cost to those provinces of losing AB’s younger population to the remaining CPP fund is $133B.

Kenney hid this report. He didn’t want it out. He doesn’t like what it says because it shows how dangerous his plan is. #ableg #abpoli #alberta #calgary #edmonton #yyc #yeg #yql

I'll be updating the media on the @CityofEdmonton's ongoing response to #COVID19 shortly. I'll share a summary of my statement below👇.

You can also watch LIVE on the City's YouTube channel:
As you all know, @YourAlberta announced further details and a June 12 timeline for Stage two of its Relaunch Strategy. And as we heard from Adam today, the City will be reopening a few more amenities next week, which is encouraging.
I know that Edmontonians are keen to see our fantastic recreation facilities and pools open but as previously mentioned - we are still working through plans to do so safely, while also taking into account the City's financial limitations due to #COVID19.

Over half way through the year and, at long last, Alberta Q1 2019 opioid reporting is made available. Let’s have a look at the stats shall we?

#abpoli #AbLeg

alberta.ca/opioid-reports…
“There continues to be a high number of accidental fentanyl related poisoning deaths in the province,
however, the number in the most recent quarter is comparatively less than the previous.”

Sounds like the harm reduction and overdose response initiatives are helping.
This begs the question, if we are in fact seeing a decline in overdose deaths, why are we pausing these services in communities that clearly still need them?

Now is not the time defund, delay, or discontinue supervised consumption services.

In April, Alberta, Canada, will elect a new provincial government. Many may be unaware that the current @rachelnotley govt has adopted a globally significant #climate plan. Here is what's in it, what it has done, and what is at stake next month. A THREAD #abvote 1/24
First, where did Alberta’s Climate Leadership Plan plan come from? (George Soros, perhaps? Foreign-funded radicals?) No. It came from Albertans. A volunteer panel led by @andrew_leach spoke w 1K residents in-person and heard from 25K+ online. 2/24
The panel also engaged with 350+ stakeholders and met w Aboriginal Peoples in three cities, and received hundreds of detailed submissions from NGOs, industry groups and others. 3/24
