OPINION | Kenney threatens serious action on COVID. And this time, he says he means it

Premier Jason Kenney declared a public health emergency on Tuesday, with more COVID-related restrictions, but his underlying message remains the same to Albertans: please take personal responsibility or I’ll be forced to take drastic action. And this time, I really mean it!

Kenney continues to play the role of exasperated parent in the driver’s seat telling the mischievous kids in the back seat to stop misbehaving or by golly he’s pulling the car over. In, um, three weeks.

That’s how long he’s giving Albertans to obey his latest restrictions or face “stricter measures.”
