Jason Kenney’s no-win situation in Alberta

In today’s Big Story podcast, the Alberta Premier does not like restrictions, or telling people to stay home. His caucus likes that stuff even less. But the third wave of Covid-19, which is hammering Alberta thanks to looser restrictions than the rest of Canada, has left Kenney with no choice.

Kenney hasn’t been tough enough on restrictions to contain Covid-19, or loose enough to please his base. Now, more than a year into the pandemic he and his party trail Rachel Notley and the NDP in the polls. How did Kenney end up in a no-win situation? Where could he have taken a different path? And what does this mean for the future of his party and his province?
