COVID-19 vaccine rules, equalization ‘derailed’ support for Kenney: Smith
Jason Kenney‘s imposition of COVID-19 vaccine mandate and other public health measures, along with the province’s desire for equalization changes, are what “derailed” his leadership, suggests leadership rival Danielle Smith.In an interview with The West Block’s Mercedes Stephenson, Smith said Kenney’s decisions to put in place public health measures as COVID-19 spiked were a miscalculation that led younger voters who normally vote conservative to draw “a line in the sand.”“That brought out a lot of mums and dads in their 30s and 40s who said, ‘We’ve got to do something different here.’ And I think the premier maybe miscalculated when he brought in vaccine passports after saying he wasn’t going to,” Smith said.She added she believes many Albertans feel he also hasn’t taken the referendum to push for changes to the equalization formula seriously enough. Alberta Premier Jason Kenney intends to step down as UCP leader after narrow leadership win When asked about Kenney’s decision to bring in vaccine mandates, which public health experts had recommended at the time, she claimed: “We saw very early on the vaccination wears off” and that people “could still get and transmit, get very sick even if you were vaccinated.”That is inaccurate.The variant currently circulating is Omicron, and a subvariant of that known as BA.2.
