    After ordering Alberta’s toughest COVID-19 restrictions, Premier Jason Kenney says he’s run out of tools to prevent a worst-case scenario in the health-care system.

    The Alberta government said it is getting tougher on those breaking public health orders brought in amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The government said fines will double from $1,000 to $2,000 for those found to be breaking COVID-19 restrictions.

    “Action must be taken and action is being taken,” Justice Minister Kaycee Madu said Wednesday morning.

    “We need concrete action to address the ongoing and escalating threat to public health and the strain on our healthcare system being imposed by those who continue to defy our efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19.”

    Critics say what they believe is Kenney’s slow response set the stage for Alberta’s crisis. Sarah Offin reports.
