I really hope Alberta's Public Heath Officer knows more about pandemic control than she does about speaking English. This week she spoke about "lived experience". Is there any other kind of experience? Woolly words reveal woolly thinking. I'm not overwhelmed by the implications of that thought. I don't know how much comfort to take from the widespread suspicion that the provincial goverment in Albeta doesn't always take the Public Health Officer's advice. But I do admire her decision to take a long arranged day off to be with her kids rather than appear at a press conference announcing a planned easing of Covid restrictions. The relaxations are part of the provincial goverment's plans to rapidly return us to normality, or as or as the Public Health officer would regrettably dub it, Normalcy.
