Just weeks before bringing in the fourth round of COVID-19 restrictions, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney “swore to God” the province will be open for good.
Kenney makes the remark in a secretly-taped video of him from Calgary Freedom Central.
The video shows Kenney in a cowboy hat at what looks like a Stampede-type gathering.
A man who is surreptitiously taping Kenney talks to him about COVID-19, saying he has been hit hard by provincial lockdowns and is worried there may be more.
“It’s open for good. Open for good,” Kenney tells the man.
“I swear to God,” Kenney said, making the sign of the Cross.
Kenney tells the man there will be no need for further restrictions because the percentage of Albertans that have been vaccinated will keep the hospital system from being overwhelmed.
He said Britain is seeing a huge increase in COVID-19 cases but hospitalization rates are remaining stable.
When asked about people who are refusing to get vaccinated, Kenney said because they’re younger they’re not as likely to be severely affected by COVID-19.
“In Alberta, we’ve only had two deaths under the age of 30, zero under the age of 20,” Kenney says.
