Letter: Red Deer mayor and premier need to do better

I am disappointed in our Premier Jason Kenney and Mayor Tara Veer.

Neither one of them know how to handle our growing pandemic.

Where has our mayor been when Covid-19 cases have reached an all time high in our city?

Premier Kenney has only implemented so called restrictions in certain hot spots. Is he scared to do a complete lockdown for fear of stepping on someone’s toes? If the Premier of Nova Scotia can do a total lockdown and restrict travel, why can’t Kenney? His lack of action will cause more cases and deaths.

It’s time for both of them to go.

Grace Muirhead, Red Deer

Editor’s note: This letter was written and submitted before Kenney’s announcement on further restrictions on Tuesday evening and before Veer’s address on Wednesday morning.
