March 2021 MLA Report – Calgary Glenmore – Whitney Issik

Calgary Glenmore

Dear friends and neighbours,

March has arrived – typically this month brings snowfalls followed by warm, sunny days getting us all anxious for the arrival of Spring!

I want to first update you on the COVID-19 vaccination rollout in Alberta. Our province has consistently been a leader among vaccine deployment. However, Ottawa has put a wrench in our ability to get vaccines into the arms of Albertans due to limited supply. Please know that we will continue to get shots into the arms of our most vulnerable and those on the frontlines as fast as we can be supplied with vaccines.

To every single Albertan that has expressed concern about the 1976 Coal Policy, we hear you and thank you for being engaged and passionate. Alberta’s government is listening to Albertans by reinstating the entirety of the 1976 Coal Policy after concerns were raised about mining in the Eastern Slopes. We will be engaging in full consultation to create a modern coal policy for Alberta.

Finally, Alberta has received its second positive grade for red tape reduction from the Canadian Federation of Independent Business – an “A”! We are glad to see that Alberta is the most improved province in Canada when it comes to red tape reduction – a strategy that, when done right, saves Albertans both time and money. If you have any ideas about how Alberta can further reduce red tape, please share them at

As the daylight hours lengthen, I hope you’re able to continue to take advantage of all the parks available in Calgary-Glenmore and find your pot of gold on St. Patrick’s Day.

I wish all in the Jewish community a Happy Passover.

As always, it is an honour to serve as your MLA.
