FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Red Deer – Mountain View, AB
For the past 16+ months, those of us who have dared to question government and public health decisions have been branded racists, tin hats, unhinged conspiracy theorists, and even murderers.
Many Albertans will be happy to have some of their freedoms back on July 1st. Some will continue to say that we are reopening too fast. Others will be requesting a full and independent pandemic inquiry to ensure that Alberta is better prepared for future pandemics and to ensure our individual freedoms are never so callously disregarded again.
We, the people of Alberta, request an inquiry into these specific areas (with the option for others) prior to the fall sitting of the Legislature:
Cost/benefit analysis of Xi Jinping supported lockdown measures of the working well.
Onus of proof documents to state why our Charter Rights were suspended.
Reasons why previous pandemic plans were ignored in their entirety.
Plans to immediately improve conditions in long-term care facilities and better protect seniors in the event of a future pandemic.
Data to support closure of small businesses in favour of leaving multi-national box stores open.
Rationale for closing schools, youth sports and other children’s activities.
Reasoning for closing fitness facilities despite their obvious known benefits to overall health.
Case transmission data to prove that certain public gatherings were more dangerous than others, thus leading to an unequal distribution of arrests and seizures of private property.
Ethical analysis completed to support provincial reopening being tied to jab uptake.
Legislation that will be passed at an emergency summer sitting of the Legislature to confirm that individual Albertans will be responsible for their personal health decisions in future and that the government will never again force lockdowns on Albertans.
