David Khan's response to Premier Kenney's Address to Albertans:
You may, like me, have watched Premier Kenney’s televised address to Albertans last night. It was a sobering picture of the challenges we will face in the weeks and months ahead.
I stand with Premier Kenney in urging everyone to follow the advice of our public health experts.
I have the utmost confidence in their strategy to fight the spread of COVID-19, flatten the curve, and minimize its impact on Albertans.
Of course, the success of this plan relies on both you and me doing our part.
We are in this together.
And if we are truly all in this together, then the government must support all sectors of the economy and all who contribute to it.
Every effort must be made to keep employees in their jobs – to help with their mental health, their financial situation, and to allow businesses and organizations to easily reopen and hit the ground running once physical distancing measures are relaxed.
