Rollout puts vulnerable Albertans at risk There are many people living in the community (18 to 64 years of age) who are very susceptible to COVID-19.

I know of individuals with muscular dystrophy, spinal cord injuries, multiple sclerosis, and other conditions that make them very vulnerable.
Shifting to a circular economy
Over the last couple of years, I have had the privilege to sit as the vice-chair of the Metropolitan Region Servicing Plan Task Force. Recently, we heard a presentation about the shift to circular economies from the linear economic growth model reflected in Canada and Alberta, as well as other countries around the world, which is based on extracting raw materials to make products that are used for a short time and then disposed of. This has been the predominant practice for businesses and governments in the past due to the abundance of resources available and society’s demand for a high level of convenience.
