There’s been a lot of debate surrounding these two tweets, one from Copping & one from his Comms advisor…

So we tried to make some sense of it.

And fell down an extremely confusing rabbit hole.

A thread you’re going to want to read…


#abpoli #ableg #cdnpoli #COVID19AB
The first question was why, as per the ministers own tweet, he was only isolating after he rapid tested positive despite symptoms.

His Comms advisor corrected that by saying Copping was isolating immediately, implication being Coppings tweet was just poorly written.

To be clear, the current restrictions on ONE of the government websites is that anyone with symptoms must isolate.

As you can clearly see here…

But as per Brett, Copping was isolating immediately, so that’s good news.

But then people were asking why he took four tests.

It’s not what Hinshaw has said, in fact she has been very clear that symptoms should be treated as COVID, regardless of rapid test results.

But we're curious so we wanted to see what the current government
instructions are for rapid testing guidelines.

So we literally googled "alberta rapid test guidelines"

As you can see here.

Now the first hit directs you to the government website that we shared above.

We wanted to know the specific rapid testing guidelines though, so we took a look at the second link..

Which directs you to this...

As you can see, this document is dated January 2022…

But lets take a look at the section that would have been relevant to Copping, the negative test section.

It says quite clearly to take two tests (not 4).

But that's iust the beginning…

This is where the wheels come off.

According to this document, which is completely in contradiction of the other government website, a second negative test, regardless of symptom status means that you can go about your day.

Feel free to read that more than once.

We did.

So what we have is two government websites/documents that are publicly available, appear by all reasonable measure to be current and that completely contradict each other.

Is it really any wonder why we’re in the mess that we’re in?

Jason Kenney is live-streaming on Facebook.

We’re a bit behind, but let’s time delay tweet!


#abpoli #ableg #cdnpoli
Kenney starts by recognizing he’s on treaty 7 land in the briefest land acknowledgment ever and quickly pivots to a feel good story about a FN veteran, then pivoting to the “Notley/Trudeau alliance”
Kenney - Albertans we’re further victimized by economy, Covid and more.

No one could have seen any of those things coming he says.

(Except for everyone who did).

Bad news.

Bought a ticket last night, but in a fascinating coincidence, the UCP claim they closed their registration for observers at almost the exact minute that the crowdfunding was successful.

They won’t accept in person registration.

#abpoli #ableg #cdnpoli

Guess they aren’t fans?

That’s cool though. We’ve already heard from a few of the protestors who will be attending the AGM outside, and if the UCP won’t take $999 to let us inside, we’re totes happy to do the outside and chat with folks.

As stated in the fundraiser by the organizers (who are super amazing awesome people and an absolute inspiration) the funds will instead be donated to charity.
