They've even gone as far as demanding Jenn retract any & all statements she made in regards to being critical of the current Alberta Government.
We are indeed dealing with a cruel & heartless government.

This is Cara's Story. **Names have been changed upon request and for protection**
Cara has gone through a lot as a child. Growing up she had difficulties in coping with traumatic experiences that she and her other family members both lived with and went through.
Ever since she was on AISH, Cara and others we have talked to all recognized that all the AISH workers that our daughter and others have had to work with have always reinforced to their clients the lifelong message that many clients were unworthy of support, care & medical care.

*Husband after a night out drinking with friends. He caught an @Uber home*
Hubby: (wakes me up when he comes into the room wanting to give me a kiss before he goes to his side of the bed, only to step on the cats tail which sets a whole shitshow into motion)
Manages to go to his side of the bed and lays down only to giggle like a school kid passing gas in class for absolutely no reason.
When asked why he was giggling he looked at me and said I farted and it was silent but it’s deadly cause I ate an onion and bean dip at Rogers.

This is what happened when I got home tonight. I cried. I cried at work yesterday. I also cried 3 different times last night after getting home from work.
I am an Office Administrator at an elementary school and this is how my day has gone. I'm crying because the work and expectations that have been put upon us with the added ridiculous time frames are overwhelming.

If people donate a total amount of $1000 I will take a picture of me in my @Hell_Berta hoodie from @BallerGearCA later on tonight!
When someone DM’s you but doesn’t make any sense, yet gets angry at you for not helping them, so you help them by giving them people and organizations to contact....only to be blocked after for not helping them the way they wanted to be helped....what do you do?
It’s all just odd....
Things like this make me mad 😡. @HarvestHillsYYC is a grass roots organization that only has at the moment a staff of twenty volunteers that also have lives and families of their own
But when someone makes a request and demands to be put to the top of the list ahead of others..
...and when they are politely told that it was not possible because there were other requests ahead of them...they accused The Harvest Hills Cares Calgary Team of not wanting to help!
They even threatened to go ahead and tell everyone about the “experience” they had.

I’m scared. I’m afraid. I’m concerned. I and my family are now in isolation. My daughters school has an outbreak and she woke up with symptoms yesterday. I kept her home and immediately called #AbHealth to book tests for us all.
But I’m scared. Scared for my children, scared for my husband. Scared and afraid. I’m told that since it’s just my daughter that’s exhibiting symptoms..the rest of my family can still go on with our normal lives. We can still go out into the community and still go out in public.
“The UCP is planning to change the eligibility criteria for AISH. The issues manager for the Premier tweeted that Albertans with mental or psychological disabilities aren’t “really” disabled.
... I truly believed that as a society we were past the point where we have to hide mental health problems, or listen to people people say they aren’t “real” health issues. The UCP taking us back in time again.”
I just got DM’d by one of the families who were recipients of a “Gift Card” from @RajanJSaw office. They were given $100.00 in gift cards and that barely covered diapers and formula and left nothing over for food. Plus they had to then find a way to the grocery store.
And by the way if you are on Alberta Works and or AISH...you have to report to your worker that you received such a gift. And that could affect your monthly cheque.

Good News: The Young Mom is safe and sound.
Even Better News: The powered wheelchair is being delivered NEXT WEEK to the young woman who is a double amputee and has been waiting for a chair from the @YourAlberta & @RajanJSaw office... for an extremely long time.
A big thank you to all the volunteers who have made all this happen. To the @HarvestHillsYYC team of volunteers, @GrannyGTArp and @EveryAlbertan and also @paul_yyc as well! Without all these awesome people...doing what they do...all of this may not have happened! 😊 So thank you!

If any parent wants to home school their children but also has to work ETC, There is a group of parents in YYC who are willing and wanting to help other parents in YYC.
Ex: if you want to homeschool your child, but dont have the time, this group of parents will work out an “education schedule” in which your child would still be able to complete the necessary school work while still being able to socialize safely with other kids in the group.

From the school board this morning:
For the 2020-21 school year, the CBE will require all staff and students (kindergarten to Grade 12) to wear a mask at school. This includes classrooms and public spaces such as hallways, learning commons, bathrooms, etc.
Masks are also required for staff and students travelling on Calgary Transit or a yellow school bus.
We are working on mask guidelines including support for students and staff who are unable to wear a mask due to medical conditions or other needs.

@ENMAX I am very disappointed in you. To think you say you are here to help only to direct the people that come to you for help to your community partners...
...community partners mind you that are already swamped with requests for assistance and such only to be told “sorry we can’t help you, have you tried looking for work or asking your friends or family for a short term loan to pay your past due balance?”

So Someone just called Jenn from @HarvestHillsYYC and berated her for not revealing who I am. They are a organization that wants to help not hurt the people living in Alberta.
First: I do what I do because I want to help
Second: I am going back and forth on whether or not to reveal myself because I do not want my children or other family members who are in the public to be targeted or harassed. Especially the ones who are already in the public eye.
