I wonder if anyone can come in to the AB Leg to supervise. Actually I think they need supervision and some need a time out

The lies run strong with this government. You have seen what happened to curriculum without the input of the profession. Ask yourself if this is what you want more of in education in Alberta. @AdrianaLaGrange #abpoli #standwithABteachers
Last month, minister LaGrange announced a plan to strip the ATA of its professional regulatory functions related to discipline, effectively changing the ATA to a trade union. Why scrap a system that has worked well for over 100 years? ➡️ loom.ly/yzm7lLw #ableg #abed

And again last week.
Alberta’s largest unions call for temporary circuit-breaker measures to stop Omicron. “The pandemic in Alberta is out of control; our workplaces and schools are unsafe; and our health system is being overwhelmed.” #COVID19AB #abpoli #cdnpoli afl.org/alberta_s_largest_un…

Am I the only one who thinks that "well did they have any comorbidities," is starting to sound a lot like, "but what was she wearing?"

Does this include intimidation on this platform? @TwitterSupport
Update: It is now illegal to intimidate doctors, nurses, and patients – or to obstruct them from providing care or seeking treatment – as our government’s legislation to criminalize this behaviour comes into force today. We’ll continue to have the backs of health care workers.

#UCP have outdone themselves All staff at the Fort Saskatchewan hospital were directed to patient care this morning in a personal email from the site director. All medically trained management. Admin. Support. Everything. The system is officially broken #AbLeg #abpoli

Our 3 kids went to school this week, we haven’t left home or seen anyone in weeks. After 5 days at school, our youngest (1st dose Dec 22) tested positive yesterday. I let the school know + sent a note to every parent in our grade. This is flying through schools. #bced

Playing the “Don’t you know who I am, I am going to phone your boss & get you fired” now is “I am the Boss of you, so do it or get fired” Well until 2023
This is a fireable offence. Calling the police chief is completely unacceptable by any MLA; but it is even worse coming from the Justice Minister. Madu needs to step down.

Just got hit viscerally with the horror of asking retired, elderly teachers to come in to schools to be infected alongside children in order to facilitate the labour of working-age adults… this is not a healthy society

Update: @GovCanHealth has approved Paxlovid, Pfizer’s antiviral treatment for COVID-19. We’ve secured 1 million treatment courses – more than 30,000 have already arrived, and we’re getting at least 120,000 more before the end of March.

My daughters school is full of covid, teachers are coming to school even though their husbands have tested positive, while kids are dropping like flies. This was @jkenney plan? This is @AdrianaLaGrange and @nicoledsparrow plan on how to keep kids safe?#AbLeg #abpoli #abed

Well COVID has finally entered our home. My partner said it best, it’s like Jason Kenney walked into our house sneezed on us , told us to f—k off and then left. My biggest worry was my youngest would get exposed at school and then feel guilty. This isn’t his fault.

Jason Kenney and his ilk have been walking around for 3 years wearing a shirt that says "I❤️Oil & Gas", but never a shirt that says "I❤️Albertans". I don't know what y'all were expecting. #AbLeg

Translation into Trucker speak “Don’t cry me a river, get the hell vaccinated or stay the fuck home, those are your choices, not mine. We don’t give a fuck what you do, it’s that simple No corporate handouts no exemptions No sympathy & No pay cheque you fucking idiot”
CEO of major transport company (Bison) states on BNN that it's up to Canadians to solve the problem of truckers and the border. No, it's up to truckers to get the goddamned vaccine. #cdnpoli

The whole ‘schools NEED to be open for kids’ mental health’ insistence is FAR down the list of the actual reasons UCP wants them open now, including: -babysitting -worker shortage—don’t want parents home -make sure all kids catch covid -UCP hates teachers -decimate public ed.
