Restore public safety measures to protect Albertans from COVID-19

Restore public safety measures to protect Albertans from COVID-19

Bring Alberta’s reopening plan in line with the science.

Why is this important?

Last week, Premier Jason Kenney lifted all COVID-19 restrictions in Alberta — including contact tracing and mandatory quarantines for people who have tested positive for COVID-19. [1]

Alberta is on the precipice of a fourth wave fuelled by the Delta variant — and the spread will be especially dangerous for unvaccinated Albertans. [2]

Medical professionals are already speaking out about Alberta’s reopening plans: the Canadian Paediatric Society has called the plan an “unnecessary and risky gamble.” [3]

Nurses, medical officials, teachers, parents and community members have taken to the streets demanding the return of basic COVID-19 safety protocols to protect all of us. All that’s missing is a wave of public pressure aimed directly at Kenney. [4]

Add your voice to the petition calling for Kenney to bring Alberta’s reopening plan in line with the science.

Reasons for signing

  • It is madness, possibly criminal, and certainly immoral to deliberately expose people, including children under twelve, to this rapidly spreading, continually mutating virus. Even the fully vaccinated are not immune.
  • Like others, I think this is too soon. I will continue to mask and use other precautions, probably for a long time because this virus will be endemic. Those who refuse to get vaccinated will just keep it going and mutating forever.
  • better safe than sorry
