UCP MLA Nixon vacationing in Hawaii
by Dave Naylor
The same day as Municipal Affairs Minister Tracy Allard issued a grovelling apology for ignoring COVID-19 travel guidelines, it has emerged Calgary-Klein UCP MLA Jeremy Nixon has also been dipping his toes in the Hawaiian surf.
Another member of Alberta Premier Jason Kenney’s UCP caucus has been caught breaking their own government’s non-essential travel restrictions, spending the holidays in sunny Hawaii.
Jeremy Nixon joins at least two other UCP MLAs and a growing number of UCP staffers who have been caught breaking their own lockdown restrictions.
The CBC reported Friday night that they had confirmed Nixon, a parliamentary secretary, had been in Hawaii, despite Kenney putting the province in a full COVID-19 lockdown. Alberta and federal health officials have also issued recommendations warning against all non-essential travel.
Despite that, Municipal Affairs Minister Tracey Allard thought it would be okay to travel to Hawaii to continue a “family tradition” that has been going on for 17 years.
