Alberta hit another grim milestone yesterday. 20 people died of COVID 19 in the province between Sunday and Monday and we’ve hit 10,000 active cases.

Mayor Nenshi has been very vocal about how worried he is about COVID19 getting out of control in the city. He took to Twitter last night to urge Calgarians to NOT wait for the Provincial Government to tell us what to do, and as always, reminded us to be kind to each other through this terrible time.

Another episode of the Bachelorette is airing tonight and we already know SOMETHING that will be sent away…the moustache living on Noah’s face. Sounds like Tayshia isn’t a super fan and asks him to shave it off!!
