Test

Alberta will not be participating in the national test of the emergency alerting system scheduled for 1:55pm today due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis.

Hours before a preplanned test of the national emergency alerta system the Alberta announces it will not participate in the national emergency crisis Alert because of the ongoing Covid crisis in Alberta. Not much use having an emergency alert system if it is not able to be used in a crisis in Alberta even though it can be used in every other province during a crisis. Or is it a case where Kenney is just trying to show up Trudeau for his base? Reply With Quote
Nov 26, 2020 | 07:23 2 So is that to alert us when they actualy have some vaccine in Canada as I'm guessing they have no idea when we actualy get any? Reply With Quote

    Trudope never gave enough money away on the international stage to be high on the list of Countries to receive the vaccine.

    Is China in full vaccination mode yet? It was there first, they should have a head start.

    ......or maybe they already had the antidote? Reply With Quote

    Maybe when China developed the coronavirus to screw with the rest of the world....they developed the vaccine or antidote at the same time... Reply With Quote

    I cannot for the life of me figure out how this is relevant to Agriculture, Commodities, or even the usual favourite off topic topics. Or how it affects any of us? Reply With Quote

    It doesn't. The purpose of the thread is to bully and shame. Evidently bullying is OK as long as the bully is woke. Reply With Quote

    Don’t see why they need to test it anyway. Do you think there’s some one in Alberta that doesn’t know there’s a pandemic and their cell will tell them with the emergency alert? Reply With Quote

    That is the conversation with a lot of people, China, UN, WHO, Dems, all want control without firing a shot. Bloodless war on USA/Trump, capitalism. It's going great for them so far...

    Their minion in Ottawa might be first to get the Vac, maybe has already. Reply With Quote

    They don't here. I've seen it in screenshots of people from Sask posting their weather, but we've never had an alert for Covid on the weather network in Alberta.

    I don't mind. When there's actually a weather event, like severe thunderstorm, snowfall, tornado, wind, etc. I'm more likely to notice it. I'm not habituated to my app saying there's a warning every day for the last 9 months so I don't even look at it anymore. Reply With Quote

  • Nov 26, 2020 | 13:07 15 I test my fire alarms and check to make sure furnace is working properly and auto levels is proper. I don't see where checking an alert system is political or deserves to be name calling anyone. But go ahead and call me down for making sure my safety alerts are working properly even if they could save your life. Reply With Quote

    I didn’t think Blackberries worked at all so that could explain it.

    So you wrongly state that Alberta isn’t getting an alert, and when it does and proves you blatantly wrong, you put it down?....🙄 Reply With Quote

    I’m confused. You were mad Alberta wasn’t going to alert us today like the rest of the country.

    And then they alerted us today.

    And it’s bad because they should have done it on Tuesday when we were all tuned in to the press conference?

    Your narrative changes with the story 😂 Reply With Quote
