OPINION | Kenney’s COVID-19 apology a calculated political move

When Premier Jason Kenney held his long-awaited news conference on Tuesday to announce new COVID-related restrictions, he did two unusual things. Well, unusual for him.

He admitted to making a mistake and he issued an apology.

I don’t want to overstate the moment but, well, I’ve never heard Kenney definitively do either of those things in his 23 years as a politician.
