  • The first UCP leadership race debate took place on Wednesday and saw perceived front-runner Danielle Smith defending parts of the Alberta Sovereignty Act against attacks from many of the other candidates, although most of them also expressed support for other elements of the plan. Education policy was one topic not covered in the debate, but Parents for Choice in Education are hosting a virtual forum on Thursday at 6:00 pm, which you can register for here.

  • The Health Sciences Association of Alberta (HSAA) ratified a new four-year collective agreement. The deal is retroactive to April 1st, 2020 and will result in a 4.125% pay increase over four years. HSAA members include respiratory therapists, lab workers, paramedics, mental health professionals, and others.
