I miss when we learned who had died from the virus and where. Now they are just numbers, not people that had families and friends.


It doesn't seem like our hospitals are overrun, like at all. So can we stop with the minute by minute case count. Remember 15 days to flatten the curve? I think this 'pandemic' is over.

Why does CTV continue to interview people who don’t wear their masks properly? Teach them to cover their nose before hearing what they have to say.

How many other Albertans died of otger causes today?.... It's as if they were the only ones who died. This is getting ridiculous....
