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.

This comes after the Alberta Premier, attacked Canada's top doctor, Dr. Theresa Tam, for her response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

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).
