Annual reminder on the anniversary of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s death that he did not die of old age as a beloved figure, but was murdered while in Memphis where he was supporting striking sanitation workers.
A poll the year before his death named him most hated man in America.
Commin revisitionist history of his life de-radicalizes his politics and misconstrues nonviolence.
Many people who claim to revere him today would have despised him then, as they despise those carrying out similar work.
Like Christ, MLK Jr. Died an enemy of the state.

Oraaaal question period
NDP Leader Rachel Notley said the third wave is here, but the premier failed to act over the long weekend. Bars were packed, roads were busy and GraceLife church had record attendance.
Health Minister Tyler Shandro (whose son is in the gallery if I heard correctly) said the premier will have an announcement this afternoon.

The ESG Secretariat will inform the work of the war room, aka the Canadian Energy Centre, Savage says.
On carbon capture utilization and storage, Savage said the province and federal governments are in cooperation. There is a working group to maximize CCUS.

Oraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaal question period.
NDP Leader Rachel Notley said yesterday the Environment and Parks Minister Jason Nixon said the coal plan has nothing to do with water. She asks about drawing water from the Old Man River basin.
As is usually the case, the entire premise of the question is false, Premier Jason Kenney said. He says there's no change to water allocation, or to the framework.

Oraaaal question period. I've flown the coop and am in the hayloft ready to hear the squawking.
NDP Leader Rachel Notley kicks things off by asking about the 1,000 layoffs at Cenovus. "We need action on jobs now." Asks whether premier will agree to an emergency debate.
Happy St. Patrick's Day, Kenney says. He shares the concern, but says we've created 266,000 jobs since the pandemic began. 37,000 new jobs in the last two months.

I'll start a new thread for Premier Jason Kenney's remarks. He says happy St. Patrick's Day. I hear you're meeting in a chicken barn, but there's more squawking up here in the legislature, he says.
Kenney says the last year has called upon all of us to draw with a remarkable need for strong leadership.
When all this is said and done they will be able to learn lessons from this pandemic, but we've done better than most of the western world, Kenney says.
