In October, I bought a plane ticket to Phoenix for departure on December 31. The flight was full, with individuals and families complying with health guidelines. Upon arrival, I continued to follow Alberta’s guidelines in Arizona, limiting contacts to immediate household members, etc. I support individuals and families having the freedom to choose for themselves whether they travel or not, provided they are respectful of others in doing so. International travel, in and of itself, does not negatively impact Alberta’s COVID curve if it is done responsibly. I do not consider myself an exception to health guidelines. I have never asked Albertans to do things that I myself would not do – and that includes not travelling.I am returning home right away as requested by the Premier. Upon returning, I will be complying with all isolation requirements. There is already too much contention in our society and I regret if my actions have contributed to that. I look forward to moving past this experience and COVID, in positive directions.
