Well, we were doing pretty good. After an exceedingly rocky year or so Albertans were getting their shots, the infection rate was dropping and, aside from the apparently uneducable residue of ultra con, conspiracy theorists, paranoiacs, and the chronically delusional, people were beginning to see bit of daylight.
Then variants showed up and began to gain traction in the unvaccinated around the world. Those who know about these things began to warn of a 4th wave of Covid.
So what does our premier do?
He goes full on Arkansas on us. Throws all health precautions out the window,
Apparently, anything goes.
Now, I’ve had my shots. Everybody I know has had their shots. We, pretty much, still mask up in public just as a courtesy.
We try and nudge those acquaintance and family members who haven’t been immunized yet to get off the pot and get jabbed
But that leaves about a quarter of this province unjabbed, antagonistic and vulnerable.
OK, some of you will get lucky, some of you will come to your senses and some off you will get sick and die.
But I’d just like to point out that the fool kIller doesn’t care.
Act stupid long enough and your turn will come around.
It just irks me a bit that out elated leader, who should know better is just waving his hands and dancing around singing: “Every day in every way things are getting better and better.”
Sometime I despair. I really do.
