I hope to read about him being elected mayor and also incarcerated at the same time. That would reinforce my trust in our systems.

Living a block from the Chumir I'm happy they are closing it, but I wonder where they feel the more appropriate sites are.

I think the program would have worked if they were supervised once they consumed what ever drug they were on.

From what I've read, if they had patrolled around the site and kept the drug dealers from getting their hooks into a vulnerable population, that would have helped too.

I feel for you man, but sites like these need to be close to the people they are supposed to protect. Putting them way out in an industrial area makes no sense.

Fair, however-- they may have been patrolling the hospital grounds, but not the surrounding neighborhood. There is a corner store nearby, it's been robbed a half-dozen times. There have been people running down the sidewalk naked at people, my building has been broken into. I have to step around needles on the daily. I get that some this would happen by virtue of me living in the Beltline, but a lot of this was exasperated by the fact that they are allowed to consume and then leave and go on a wonderous adventure where some cause mayhem.

You consume at a AHS facility, then there is a social responsibility that falls to AHS to ensure people are not conducting themselves in a manner that poses a danger to others.

Kinda like going to a bar and having way too many, and taking sidewalk home in your 1976 Buick. The Bar is as responsible as you are.

Allan inquiry's credibility unravelling as fast as its confused mandate


When Jason Kenney is finished hosting the traditional premier's pancake breakfast at the Calgary Stampede this July, might I suggest he take on another more colourful role at the "Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth": that of sideshow carnival barker.

With a hearty "Step right up!" Kenney could usher us rubes into the funhouse known as the "Steve Allan Public Inquiry."

For that is what the inquiry has become: a house of mirrors worthy of a trashy midway.

Or, considering the $3.5-million price tag for a job one year behind schedule, a house of horrors.

Commissioned in July 2019 with a mandate to "inquire into the role of foreign funding in anti-Alberta energy campaigns," it is a "public" inquiry that has done nothing public except become a notable embarrassment to the Kenney government.

It is a clown car filled with deadline extensions that pop out relentlessly, one after the other.

The original report was supposed to be delivered to the government in July 2020 but that target was extended to October, then January, then May and now July.

Head of coal-mining panel says Albertans' trust in resource regulators to be examined

A public consultation committee on coal mining in the Rocky Mountains will consider why Albertans' level of trust in the province's regulatory bodies is so low, the panel's head said Monday.

In an hour-long CBC Radio phone-in show, Ron Wallace said he's concerned by results of a recent government survey on coal mining. Wallace pointed out that of about 25,000 respondents, 85 per cent said they were not confident that the industry was being adequately regulated.

"If people have diminished confidence that the regulators are protecting the public interest, then that's a major thing," he told CBC Calgary's Alberta@Noon program.

Wallace and his panel are consulting Albertans on how the government should develop coal resources. Premier Jason Kenney's United Conservatives had planned an extensive expansion of the industry, which would have opened tens of thousands of hectares of foothills and summits to open-pit mining.

The panel was struck in response to vocal outcry over the plan, which was announced before any feedback or advice had been sought. Energy Minister Sonya Savage also stopped the sale of any new exploration leases, as well as exploration work on the most sensitive land — although work proceeds in other areas.

Wallace said his committee has reached out to industry and environmental groups. Municipalities concerned about the proposal have been asked for a combined response.

He said the panel is also reaching out to First Nations but will defer most of those consultations to separate talks.

Edmonton woman wants Black grandmother removed from Alberta curriculum draft

An Edmonton woman says the Alberta government is using her grandmother as a token of Black history and wants references to her removed from a draft new elementary school curriculum.

Julianne Sévère says her grandmother, Agnes Leffler Perry Chaney, was a teacher, a mother and a wonderful person, but not a historically significant figure in the province's Black history.

She was stunned on April 30 when she saw a provincial government advertisement promoting Leffler Perry Chaney's inclusion in Alberta's proposed new curriculum.

"My grandma helped raise me," Sévère said on Tuesday. "She's sacred to me, and to see her used — I felt powerless since the UCP took power. They just changed everything that I was starting to love about this province. And now they've taken something personal. They've soiled it in a way. I don't know if I can get that taste out of my mouth."

The United Conservative Party government says Black history is conspicuously absent from the current curriculum and have pledged to include it in a new program of studies for Alberta students.

An anecdote of Leffler Perry Chaney immigrating to Edmonton from Illinois as a child appears in a book authored by her sister, Wanda Leffler Akili, and Velma Carter, who is Sévère's godmother.

The authors recount her story of arriving in Edmonton, then her family moving to a homestead in Wildwood in west-central Alberta, where she recalls picking berries and going ice fishing.

Sévère says the 1981 book, called The Window of Our Memories, is now out of print. She knows of nowhere else where her contributions to Alberta history are recorded.

She said she is angry the government used her grandmother's name to promote a proposed curriculum that has been widely criticized for being Eurocentric and created without meaningful consultation with Indigenous peoples, francophones and people of colour.

Former UCP MLAs join forces to push changes to government bills

Two Alberta MLAs who were kicked out of the UCP caucus last month are joining forces to compel the government to change proposed legislation for recall and citizen initiatives.

Recall legislation gives people the power to oust an MLA from their seat. Citizen initiatives allow a voter to propose a referendum question that people can vote on, but they have to reach a threshold in the number of signatures they collect within in a certain time period.

Central Peace-Notley MLA Todd Loewen and Cypress-Medicine Hat MLA Drew Barnes now sit as independent MLAs in the legislative assembly.

Barnes and Loewen were originally elected as Wildrose MLAs. They joined the UCP when the Wildrose merged with the Progressive Conservatives to form the new party in 2017.

They say Bill 51, the Citizen Initiative Act, and Bill 52, the Recall Act, have thresholds that are too difficult for citizens to meet, so they plan to introduce amendments when both bills reach the committee of the whole stage of debate.

Jason Kenney defends MacDonald and rails against 'cancel culture'.

FWIW, he makes some good points and I kind of agree with him, but by whining about cancel culture and trying to deflect by mentioning Liberal leaders, he completely undermines his argument.

Questions raised after Kenney, ministers seen dining on 'Sky Palace' patio

Questions are being raised about whether Alberta Premier Jason Kenney and three of his ministers broke pandemic rules by dining on an outdoor patio yesterday, though the provincial government insists they did not.

Pictures sent to CBC News by an anonymous tipster show the premier, along with Health Minister Tyler Shandro, Environment and Parks Minister Jason Nixon and Finance Minister Travis Toews, dining on the east side of the 11th floor of Edmonton's Federal Building on Tuesday evening — the first day that Alberta's less stringent public health restrictions went into effect.

One photo shows eight people on the patio, including several sitting close together. Two, who appear to be servers, are not masked.

The gathering was within the limits of the province's Stage 1 reopening guidelines, according to Kenney spokesperson Jerrica Goodwin, which went into effect on Tuesday. Outdoor gathering restrictions increased from five to 10 people.

"The premier, with a few ministers and staff members, held a working dinner last night," Goodwin said Wednesday in an email to CBC News.

"Attendance was kept under 10," Goodwin stated. "Costs were not incurred by taxpayers."

Except, rules state "Outdoor gatherings must not have an indoor component (movement in/out of homes is not permitted)."

Injunction granted against 2nd rodeo protesting Alberta's COVID-19 restrictions

Judge rules 'No More Jason Kenney Pro Rodeo Rally' with $15 admission can't legally proceed


A judge in Calgary has granted an injunction blocking a weekend rodeo that was planned in protest of COVID-19-related public health restrictions and Alberta Premier Jason Kenney, dismissing the organizers' argument that it would be a political rally.

The event is billed as the "No More Jason Kenney Pro Rodeo Rally," and its poster promises "rodeo action all weekend" with $15 tickets being sold at the gate.

"There's very little to contest," said Alberta Health Services lawyer Kyle Fowler. "The event is not permitted to proceed."

Organizers Ty and Gail Northcott were behind an earlier protest rodeo near Bowden, Alta., last month that attracted an estimated 3,000 attendees and resulted in charges against them under the Alberta Health Act.

The Northcotts have pleaded not guilty to their contempt charges and will face another judge at a later date.
