President's Message on the COVID-19 Situation

Friends and Members

With COVID-19 now classified as a global pandemic and increasing numbers of cases confirmed in the province all scheduled Alberta Liberal Party events will be postponed until further notice. 

The Executive Committee will be meeting very shortly to discuss how to support Constituency Associations in organising AGMs and other events. We will be investigating various options with teleconferencing or virtual town halls.

I am aware that there will be questions that such a response is unnecessary or is going too far. I would simply argue that it is better to be safe than sorry. As a paramedic, working the front-line of our health care system, I am intimately aware of how the public health system is coping and how the situation is evolving. I assure you that I and the Executive Committee will continue to do our very best with this rapidly changing situation. 

Please make every effort to stay healthy. Look after yourself and those close to you. If you are feeling unwell, stay home, phone a friend. Don’t hesitate to call 811 for information and support. For up to the minute information, keep an eye on AHS’ Covid19 website.  

Sincerely,

Pete Helfrich, 

President, Alberta Liberal Party.
