Kenney attacks Canada's top doctor and Health Canada as poll shows his support plunging - 2020-04-14
A new poll shows that a majority of Albertans believe former premier Rachel Notley would be handling the COVID-19 crisis better than current premier Jason Kenney. A separate poll shows support for Kenney's United Conservative Party has dropped to 40 percent in the province.
In an interview on Monday, Kenney went on a tirade, questioning the competency of Canada's Chief Public Health Officer and implying that she was acting as a mouthpiece for the Chinese government. Critics have called the attack a dog-whistle to xenophobic parts of Kenney's base (Dr. Theresa Tam was born in British Hong Kong).
