I urge any Albertan who hasn't gotten immunized or still needs a booster to consider doing so. Reports suggest fully vaccinated individuals are 19 times less likely to end up in the hospital with Omicron than unvaccinated individuals. /2

Alberta is showing real leadership on practically reducing emissions with technologies like carbon capture, utilization and storage. Ottawa needs to come up with some serious investments if they want to meet their aggressive climate targets. (1/2) theglobeandmail.com/business…

Valentina, 9, is looking forward to one day travelling again when it’s safe to do so. She received her COVID-19 vaccine in Calgary. "It really is worth it," says her mom, Andrijana. #shotofhope

Glad to see Health Canada finally grant approval to Pfizer’s Paxlovid medication for Covid-19. 2022 will likely see many other effective Covid treatments become available. Together with the powerful protection that vaccines offer, this is good news. globalnews.ca/news/8516373/p…

Alberta will not be following Quebec’s lead on taxing unvaccinated people. To do so would be un-Canadian. 🎥 Watch my answer:

Freezing rain is back in many parts of Alberta. On icy days, slips and falls can come into play. Be careful out there! Walk like a penguin.
