I was surprised to find more than a dozen UCP MLAs were criticizing the new lockdown measures due to Covid in the April 8 edition of the Advocate.
Do these MLAs live in some sort of bubble?
With virus cases on the rise at a uncontrollably rate these people are definitely not in tune with reality. I am well aware there are issues with small businesses struggling but we have to get control of this virus or there may not be a tomorrow or they might be out of business anyway.
Their stance is also disrespectful to the nurses, doctors, and support staff that risk their lives every day to keep our medical system going and struggle with deaths daily.
All you have to do is look at the mess Ontario is in right now and may be people would realize that if we continue on our present path there will be a total lockdown.
Would these MLAs feel the same way if one of their family members got the virus and was unable to receive hospital care because of over capacity at the hospitals?
It’s time all Albertans pulled together and quit looking at short term solutions and started looking at how we can help each other for the benefit of all long term.
Also it is high time that the government start enforcing the laws pertaining to the shut downs due to the virus. Premier Jason Kenny should quit saying the end of the virus is in site with people getting vaccinated because he has no idea this is true and he should pay more attention to the experts (doctors) when it comes to closures rather than basing decisions on what will make people happy.
Simple question is ‘do you want any of your family to die because of the virus?’ Then pay attention to the rules laid down by the doctors.
