Former Reform Party leader Preston Manning was tapped by the Alberta government to lead an inquiry into Alberta’s legislative response to Covid. The panel found that Albertans need better protection against infringements on their rights and freedoms and that Alberta’s emergency management agency – not public health officials – should take the lead on emergency response. The panel also recommends against school closures, which it found should only be a last resort and for as short a time as possible. Manning joins True North’s Andrew Lawton to discuss the panel’s report and recommendations.
