It must have seemed like a good idea to the Con porker Jason Kenney.
He hasn't had many good ideas in his long and sordid career. So he must have been sure this one would be a winner.
He would lift the Covid-19 restrictions, and proclaim that it would be Alberta's "Best Summer Ever!!!"
But sadly for him, and the people of Alberta, his reckless plan blew up in his face.Now Covid is spreading like wildfire, the death rate is soaring, hospitals are on the verge of collapse.
Now it's the "Worst Summer Ever."
And for the first time ever, Kenney was forced to admit he was wrong, and that he was sorry. Not for lifting the Covid restrictions, only for declaring that the pandemic was over.
But that was nothing compared to his buddy Erin O'Toole's embarrassment, for having claimed that Jason Kenney's approach to fighting Covid was better than the approach taken by the federal government.

But while the hapless O'Toole is only too willing to blame Trudeau, he is still refusing to blame Jason Kenney for Alberta's bloody debacle.
Even when asked about it more than FIFTEEN times in two days.
Which of course makes him look like a coward and a loser...
Or a man who is losing his marbles.
Or all of the above.
But then who can blame poor old O'Toole?
When he owes his Con leadership to Kenney who told his faithful religious fanatics, and other right-wing extremists, to vote for him...
And still hovers over him like some depraved fairy Godmother...
But who is now, albeit unwillingly, helping Justin Trudeau to soar above them all, apparently heading for victory according to Nik Nanos.
The Liberals are in winning territory with votes coming from mail-in ballots heavily in their favour, according to projections from Nanos Research.
“Right now, assuming that this current scenario upholds for the next two days, and there’s no significant movement, we’re looking at a Liberal win. Period. Full stop.”
It shouldn't be that close.
I met Betty a few weeks ago in Regina. She’s 9, and she wrote to me last year to make sure her grandparents would get vaccinated. They did. So did 26 million other Canadians.— Justin Trudeau (@JustinTrudeau) September 15, 2021
Betty’s too young to get the vaccine. So please, help protect her, and kids like her. Get vaccinated. pic.twitter.com/0eoMViUQX8
Trudeau deserves more than a minority for steering this country through a deadly pandemic, providing generous support to its many victims.
And standing up to the right-wing menace threatening to kill him, this country, and its values...
And for that, in my opinion, for his courage and his decency, he deserves to govern Canada for at least another four years.
So let's make sure he does.
Onward, forward, let's vote to make that happen...
