As Alberta’s cases spike, Jason Kenney faces a no-win situation
The Big Story
The Alberta Premier does not like restrictions, or telling people to stay home. His caucus likes that stuff even less. But the third wave of Covid-19, which is hammering Alberta thanks to looser restrictions than the rest of Canada, has left Kenney with no choice. Kenney hasn't been tough enough on restrictions to contain Covid-19, or loose enough to please his base. Now, more than a year into the pandemic he and his party trail Rachel Notley and the NDP in the polls. How did Kenney end up in a no-win situation? Where could he have taken a different path? And what does this mean for the future of his party and his province? GUEST: Jason Markusoff, Alberta Corespondent, Maclean's

West of Centre
Keystone XL didn’t look like a sure thing even before a Democrat won the White House. Now the pipeline is effectively dead, leaving Alberta with roughly $1.5 billion in lost investment, more people out of work, and fewer job prospects. Not a great start to 2021 for Alberta’s Premier, and it’s only January. Kathleen Petty looks at how Jason Kenney is handling this latest calamity, with independent columnist Graham Thomson, the Globe and Mail’s Kelly Cryderman and Jason Markusoff of Macleans.
Alberta’s premier is coping with spiking COVID-19 cases, deepening economic turmoil and more unfavorable polls. Instead of changing course, Jason Kenney is doubling down on his anti-Trudeau, pro-pipeline rhetoric, and resisting tougher measures to fight the pandemic in favor of “personal responsibility.” Kathleen Petty examines what’s driving Kenney’s strategy with political scientist Duane Bratt of Mount Royal University, energy reporter Emma Graney of the Globe and Mail and Macleans columnist Jason Markusoff.
