Part of the problem is that Kenney thinks he is the smartest man in the room. He's far from it, it any room he is in. Everything he says and does comes across as very insincere and anyone with a brain can see that. His inability to show empathy, and change course when needed is becoming more obvious to many, and those aren't good qualities for a leader.

I agree with this. Trump has the same issue. They just don't have empathy and need/want everything to be a fight.

I've been saying that for the past 2 years. Notley screwed up the last election when she didn't tell the federal NDP to eff off and rename her party. She had the perfect opportunity when when Mulcair started going off on oil and gas.

Rename the party to the Progressive Conservatives and get all the Liberals, Alberta Party and the non bat-sit crazies from the UCP to unite.

I agree with you in spirit, but I don't think the "PC" Party is going to a healthy brand to start back up with again.

They got roughly the same amount of votes in both elections. Would doing all that really change how many people vote for them?

For anyone who is intersted - Mayor Nenshi today was grilled about the lack of social distancing and lack of mask use by a portion of the crowd at this weeks BLM protests in the city.

He scoffed at the notion that this undoes much of the hardwork citizens have done to limit the spread of Covid-19, but did ultimately concede that it is a major concern to officials, and that anyone that was in attendance should strongly consider getting tested in the coming days. Police were officially not willing to ticket anyone out of fear of negative reactions by such a large crowd.

Long story short, if you were part of this rally here in Calgary, you owe it to everyone to go and get yourself tested in the coming days to make sure this doesn't lead to another outbreak.

How long does it take before testing will pick up on the virus though?

Based on my quick search, the answer appears to be "we don't know" so someone who attended a protest yesterday, tested negative today, could still have become infected during the protest.

Probably better advice is those who were part of the rally and not following social distance requirements should self-isolate for the next 10 days and get tested near the end (or once symptoms show). But that would be pipedream to have happened with everyone.
