    Alberta is the country’s COVID-19 hot spot. It has the highest rate of active cases in Canada and the United States.

    The province has increased restrictions including limiting outdoor gatherings to five people, moving students to online learning and increasing fines for people who break the rules. Despite that, anti-lockdown protests continue.

    Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi says some recent rallies billed as opposing the wearing of masks during the pandemic are really just “thinly veiled white nationalist” and “anti-government” activities.

    In an interview with Abigail Bimman, Nenshi expressed his frustration with the fact that people refusing to wear masks and gathering in large crowds are endangering others.
